The Irish Bouzouki
The Irish Bouzouki by Niall O'Callanain & Tommy Walsh
This book gives a brief history of the bouzouki and its introduction to Ireland. There are sections on some of the better known players, showing how they use the instrument to develop the music in different ways. Because the bouzouki is a relatively new instrument in Irish music, there is no standard method of playing it. However this book could be used as a basic guide for beginners, while it also contains useful information for anyone interested in the bouzouki or modern Irish music in general. The book could not be described as an actual tutor, but merely as an introduction to an instrument which is playing an increasing role in the continuous development of Irish music.
