This book sets out to teach the reader how to play the fiddle, by using inspiring music from some of the great musical traditions of the world, especially arranged by the author for the instrument. Includes 2 CDs!
Ideal for the complete beginner, there is no need for any previous musical knowledge. Invaluable for the existing player/improver looking for fresh ideas and exciting new tunes. By working through this unique book, the reader will gain a sound knowledge of the fiddle, plus a large and varied repertoire of traditional music from all over the world. By drawing on the less commonly heard music of countries such as Venezuala, Rwanda, Holland, Trinidad, Japan and Australia, as well as the more popular traditions of Ireland and North America, this book will produce a well-rounded fiddle player - a musician who will be inspired to look further into the exciting musical traditions of the world. Rather than being an exhaustive guide to all traditional styles of the world, this book is a fiddle method, which uses tunes from around the world to demonstrate the various techniques required to produce a competent traditional musician. It is the sincere hope of the author that the student will be inspired, by the study of the music contained in this book and recording, to look more deeply into styles of particular interest.
