Customer Reviews for American Fiddle Tunes for Solo & Ensemble - Cello Bass

arrangements with great flexibility
just used 2 tunes from this collection with some young students on a Cabrillo Youth Strings chamber concert and it was great. I really appreciated the flexibility of the mix and match parts so that many different combinations can play, and the Cello part with the solo melody so we could have the cello play a break. Also it was good that there were chords in some of the parts as we had a guitar and bass reading from chords. Only suggestion is to split the solo melody between 1st and 2nd parts (for instance, Jolie Blonde, which we played) so the 2nd doesn't get bored. We did this anyway because I cut the pages so that each got the melody.
