This book is designed for beginning fiddle students. Thirty-six lessons present basic techniques by applying them to fiddle tunes, using a step-by-step fingering method that does not require reading music. Each lesson builds on the previous one and helps students create their own arrangements. Topics covered include tuning, holding the fiddle and bow, left-hand position, basic A, D, and G scales, shuffle bowing, slurs, and double stops. The book features classic tunes such as Liza Jane, Shortening Bread, Going to Boston, and Bile Them Cabbage Down. Audio and video downloads available online.
