The Walsh book is very basic, a rather typical Waltons product. Not much
real instruction there.
Karen Tweed is a great player. Her book is only a tunebook in one
sense--there is no actual instruction on how to do rolls or any of that--but
it is very informative in some ways because she has some very interesting
ideas with setting tunes. I'd get her accompanying CDs or tapes too.
You may also be interested by Alan Kelly's CD "Out of the Blue" (Kells
Music), nice way to play that much maligned instrument.
