Octave Mandolin Lesson - Chords Accompaniment - Murphy’s Hornpipe - Celtic Traditional

mandolin lesson octave mandolin performance video Oct 27, 2020

In this video, I show how I play the octave mandolin accompaniment for Murphy’s Hornpipe. It’s a traditional Irish tune I learned 17 years ago but still love to play it.

For this accompaniment, I focus on playing a strong baseline
It suits this tune well with its forward-moving chord changes.

At the end of the video, I show you how to play the accompaniment on standard mandolin, and the chord voicings I prefer for that.
