Bodhran - The Basics
Bill Woods has used his decades of experience as a successful bodhran performer and teacher to create this integrated instruction book and CD for the beginning bodhran player. Using photographs, text, and audio examples, it takes you in easy steps from holding the bodhran and stick through playing along with traditional Irish dance tunes. It shows you the basic accompaniment patterns for reels and jigs and demonstrates ways to make these patterns more interesting using rests, accents, and rolls.
