Celtic Fingerstyle decorations use the same general types of Celtic ornamentation that are used for fiddle, whistle, flute, accordion, pipe, and so on. These types of decoration (rhythmic, melismatic, and intervallic) may be combined endlessly to produce personal variations for tunes while staying close to the melody. That's the secret to Celtic embellishment.
