More info

This book contains a selection of fiddle tunes arranged for the beginning viola player. The idea is to supply a sampling of melodies that will give almost instant gratification to the novice. One of the drawbacks of the classic ways of teaching viola is the boredom of some of the early pedagogic repertoire. This book is meant to be an antidote to that tedium. Fiddle tunes are great ways to become accustomed to typical manipulations of major scale and to introduce the sound of arpeggios. The only technical requisite for the music is the ability to play a major scale of some sort. The tunes were chosen for their fun melodic content while demonstrating some typical aspects of fiddling. They are grouped by key with a couple of exceptions and roughly arranged in order of difficulty within each key group. The included split-tracked CD demonstrates many of the tunes with guitar accompaniment and will help teach the swing phrasing.
