Developing my Celtic guitar technique

I've been developing my Celtic guitar accompaniment technique recently. For years I strummed away on all six strings, but since playing guitar more avidly the last few months I've been listening to the guitar parts of tunes rather than the melody, and I'm hearing the intricate, varied accompaniments that involve so much more than just strumming all six. One of my inspirations is the playing of William Coulter on "Celtic Sessions" and "Celtic Crossings." This morning I learned to imitate his simple but hypnotic guitar intro on a set of reels from the "Sessions" CD.
