Folk & Country Waltzes for Fiddle contain 50 well known waltzes fully notated in the book and played on the CD with a full backing band. (play-a-long tracks including melody line played by another instrument). These pieces are all easy to learn. If you do not read music well (or at all) you can pick up the melody from the CD. The book can be used to build a repertoire of waltz music. At live engagements, especially weddings, the audience will always ask for a few waltzes. The material in this book covers a wide range of tempos and styles, not just slow waltzes. The melodies of these pieces are easily recognizable although you may not remember the name of a specific tune. Many of the tunes are very well known such as: Daisy, Home On The Range, Anniversary Waltz, After The Ball, Ash Grove, Greensleeves, Laredo, Scarborough Fair, Star Of The County Down, The Black Velvet Band, The Greenwood Tree, Southwind, The Four Marys, Barbara Allen, Flowers Of The Thorn, Beautiful Brown Eyes, Give Me Your Hand and many more.
