Wren's Nest - Octave Mandolin and Irish Bouzouki - Chord Lesson

octave mandolin youtube Nov 02, 2022

Here is a mandolin duo arrangement of the Irish tune called Wren's Nest. This jig was written by the great fiddler Frankie Gavin of De Dannan. I

included an octave mandolin accompaniment, and we are using some powerful chord voicing suitable for Celtic rhythm playing. The chords used are Em, A, G, D in different inversions. 

The accompaniment can also be played on the mandolin or Irish bouzouki. My tuning is GDAE.
