Album Notes
The CD features a number of original compositions in the Celtic Instrumental "open-tuning" genre in particular the popular DADGAD tuning which Tom has written over the past couple years.

Tom Mills is a singer / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist from Cape Breton who has been involved in the local music scene for over 30+ years. He is actively writing, recording, and playing various pubs, private shows, and festivals around the Maritimes and has just released a self-titled open-tuning instrumental Celtic Style CD for guitar in 2017 entitled “Full Strings Ahead“.

This style of music is popular amongst guitar players worldwide including those famous for playing “air-tap” and “open-tuning” styles of guitar finger picking like Andy McKee, Don Ross, Tony McManus, Tommy Emmanuel and Merle Travis to name a few. You will find many styles of open tunings at festivals in North America including our own Celtic-Colours.


1. An Interesting Blend of Celtic, Blues, & Country Finger Picking

"In Tom’s latest CD project “Full Strings Ahead”, a wide selection of self-penned instrumentals, he gets a chance to expose some of his influences in these original works that are an interesting blend of Celtic, Blues, and Country style finger picking. It reminds me of Leo Kottke, an American guitar master that I’ve enjoyed for over 40 years!"
~Dan MacDonald – Cape Breton Post, Cape Breton

2. Absolutely Love Your CD!

'Tom: just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love your CD. This is the type of music I can’t get enough of. You are a master picker and I am just floored at the quality of your playing. Great job on the mastering and arrangements on the CD."
~Joe Gillis, Grand Mira, Cape Breton
