Drowsy Maggie Variations

Drowsy Maggie Variations by Peter Inglis, Book 1 in The Whole Guitarist: Intermediate Repertoire series.

This is the first book in my series of repertoire pieces for Intermediate guitarists: "Drowsy Maggie Variations".

I composed these variations on the traditional Irish Reel "Drowsy Maggie", which is featured in my Basic Repertoire series. Visit any Irish Pub around the world and you are likely to hear this tune during the evening. It is also a popular tune at Bush Dances.

This arrangement is suitable for:

  • Fingerstyle guitarists who would like to add a great solo piece to their repertoire
  • Guitarists who want to learn how to make the guitar "speak"
  • Guitarists who want to revitalise their playing
  • Guitarists who want to master the essential language of rock and pop music. (Notice that the basic riff and harmonies are similar to "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin.
  • Any musician who wondered how to use the Dorian mode, and make it sound good, and
  • Any musician who would like to gain more understanding of how to write and arrange for the guitar.
