What is a Bouzouki?
The Close Shave
Performed by Andy Irvine
September 2012 at Mighty Fine Guitars in Lafayette, California
Niall Ó Callanáin and Tommy Walsh, The Irish Bouzouki
Andy [Irvine] plays the bouzouki in a very melodic style, using a lot of sustain. He creates this by hitting the strings individually, allowing them to ring rather than using heavy chording. Andy is constantly experimenting, trying to find new sounds. He searches for new chords or chord formations, plays a guitar-shaped bouzouki and uses a wound or covered second A string which results in a much mellower, sweeter tone.
