|About the Book|
Big Fun Easy Fiddle book was specially prepared for ease of use, maximum enjoyment, and optimum results. This fine book/CD set is an excellent guide to fiddling for absolute beginners. It is also a fine tunebook for first-year, emerging, and hobbyist fiddlers. Each tune is written in both standard notation AND tablature. Beginners who do not read music will learn from the tablature (number system), and fiddlers who can already read simple music will play using the notes. (The book is not a note-reading method. You do not need to know how to read music to use the book.) Excellent instructions and diagrams explain parts of the fiddle, how to hold the fiddle and bow, tablature, tuning, and more. A magic selection of 23 authentic fiddle tunes includes Granny Will Your Dog Bite, Pretty Saro, Cluck Old Hen, Green Corn, All Things Bright and Beautiful, Going to Boston, Lamplighter Hornpipe, In the Pines, more. The playalong CD includes every tune, plus count-in clicks and guitar accompaniment. Red Dog Music Books invites our customers to enjoy this outstanding book and CD at our direct-from-publisher discount price.
