GUEST,Murray MacLeod Is the guitar a traditional instrument? (61* d) RE: Is the guitar a traditional instrument? 06 Oct 00

In Scottish and Irish music, I always used to feel the guitar sat uneasily. I loathe the so-called "Shetland" style (as pioneered by Peerie Willie ) which consists of choppily strummed chords much like jazz guitar. I have always felt that fingerstyle accompaniment would be much more suitable.
Today, of course, redemption has arrived in the shape of Tony McManus, the world'd greatest guitarist, in whose hads the guitar sounds as much at home in the music as the fiddle or the pipes.
