Continuing the reissue of the classic Phillips Collection of Traditional American Fiddle Tunes - Volume 2, Favorite American Hornpipes for Fiddle presents over a hundred classic and lesser-known fiddle tunes in hornpipe style from all parts of the United States, some with multiple versions. All tunes transcribed from the playing of some of the greatest traditional fiddlers of the past and present including Benny Thomasson, Bob Walters, Howdy Forrester, James Bryan, Rodney Miller, Ruthie Dornfeld, and many more. Bowings and chord accompaniment are included. This book will also be of value to students of classical music. Teachers, are you looking for short pieces that will solidify scales and arpeggios that don't bore your students? Tired of the same old classical etudes? Hornpipes can also serve as effective and fun exercises for all violin students, not just fiddlers. Many of them could have come right out of the baroque period of art music. But they also illustrate some of America's great tradition of fiddling.
