Guitar Lead Instrument or Rhythm?
Hi. I’m new to Celtic Music (been playing 40+ years though). I am having a hard time trying to figure out why the guitar is relegated as a rhythm instrument and with very little emphasis on its melodic capability. As a fingerstyle and clasical guitarist I find that there are many tunes that are very very suitable to the guitar (O’Carolan comes readily to mind as well as Walsh)
Maybe it is just the sentiment here in the St Louis area…comments?
