Playing the Tune - Andy Kruspe

After writing and using his first book, The Bodhrán Primer, successfully with numerous students, Andy Kruspe noticed a lack of method books that demonstrated what to play with Irish traditional music.
He wrote Playing the Tune to address this gap in resources.

Through explanations, notated parts, and recorded examples, "Playing the Tune" demonstrates many of the devices used to accompany this genre of music.

This book includes:

  • A notation guide
  • 11 thoroughly explained techniques for accompanying tunes
  • CD recordings of the tune examples (melody only), drum parts, and melody with drum for each technique

Andy Kruspe’s book Playing the Tune is a wonderful companion to his first resource The Bodhrán Primer. While his first book sheds light on bodhrán technique, this new resource focuses on what to play as you accompany other musicians. Playing the Tune is a logical, step-by-step approach that allows you to apply your technique to accompany traditional Irish melodies in a variety of styles and rhythmic settings. The notation is clear and the CD tracks are fun to play along with. I don’t think there are better resources to begin learning and/or supplement your studies of the bodhrán than what Andy Kruspe has created.
