Irish bouzouki

The Irish bouzouki is an adaptation of the Greek bouzouki (Greek: μπουζούκι). Johnny Moynihan is credited with bringing the first tetrachordo (4 courses of strings) Greek bouzouki to Ireland and retuning it to G2D3A3D4 (in intervals he first used on the mandolin). In the mid-1960s, Moynihan established a presence for the instrument in Irish music with the folk trio Sweeney's Men. Alec Finn, first in the Cana Band and subsequently in De Dannan, introduced the first trichordo (3 courses of strings) Greek bouzouki into Irish music.
