Plenty of Celtic guitar players use Martins. Go with what you are familar or comfortable with.

I would've opted for the Martin for the tone, but it's a 12 fret and the reach turned out to be a deal breaker. Besides, based on this one experience I don't think I'll ever really be a "Celtic guitar player."

Would you go with obviously-Martin or obviously-not?

While this is for a recording it's not really about recording, so mods feel free to move it.
No,you'll have to play a Lowden for Irish music ... It's the law!

Great tune. I've just been messing with it in DADGAD, must be in the lower octave than you. Sits really well in that tuning with a bit of cross-picking.

I hear Lowdens have been specifically designed to play Irish music.

It's the other way round, Irish musicians were born to play Lowdens.

(You're welcome, George, you can have that one for free).

In my unscientific experience it's not about the guitar, not even about the player, it's about what the player does with the guitar.

(I think I'll keep that one for myself).

I don't generally get covetous of other people's instruments, but there is this Lowden. It belongs to a lovely lady I used to see at open mics (remember those?), and she plays it beautifully, and if she ever decided to sell it I wouldn't be able to afford it.

Back to the original issue, though, the debate was between my Martin and my other guitar, and it came down to a reach issue. The Martin's a 12-fret, so it couldn't be used. As it turned out there were a couple of high spots that gave me fits at tempo, even with the 14-fretter, so I had to paste in little two-bar overdubs in those spots. Hey, I'm a bass player, this stuff is way outside my lane. :-)

The recording is finished, the video (phone footage and rudimentary iMovie) is in progress, and it should go live right around St. P's Day.

And then profound question ... Irish or Celtic ? While I think Irish can be Celtic ...Celtic is more than Irish


Below is Celtic or Scottish Folk
And looks like Moon not Lowden

It's all done, and posted just in time for Drinking Season (which seems to start on the Friday before St. P's Day).

I think this can be more accurately categorised as Beaker People Pictish Tinge music.

Starbucks, there's a story from the old country. From the Old Norse name for sedge( star) and river(beck), a Viking familly settled by a sedgey river near Harrogate in North Yorkshire and came to be known after their home as Starbeck but one letter got changed so morphed into Starbuck , a familly with that name is recorded as living around the right place in the 14th C, long after the Vikings first showed up. Eventually a branch of the Starbucks became Quakers and emigrated to Nantucket to become a famous whaling dynasty, the name then got into Herman Melville's novel about whaling, Moby Dick. One of the founders of the original coffee shop in Seattle was a big fan of the book and he persuaded the other shareholders to name the shop Starbucks after the first mate of the whaling ship.
