You Can Teach Yourself® Fiddling, veteran
Mel Bay author, Craig Duncan, has produced an excellent
book for the beginning fiddler. Its 36 lessons teach
basic techniques through specific exercises and
traditional fiddle tunes. From holding the fiddle
and bow correctly to playing moderately advanced
tunes in double stops, Craig will guide you through
each progressive step. Although it is not necessary
to be able to read music at the start of this book,
the author gradually introduces principles of effective
note reading throughout. A unique feature of this
book is that the same tune may appear in more than
one lesson, increasing in difficulty with each recurrence.
Each variation builds on the previous one and assists
students in learning how to create their own arrangements.
Even with some repetitions of the same tune, you'll
find more than 50 popular fiddle tunes in the book's
80 pages. "Check points" and reviews keep
you on track from cover to cover. The companion
video covers the first 17 lessons from the book.
