Classical violinists can help keep alive the historic traditions of American fiddle music, but doing so requires a clear understanding of performance practice. A Guide to American Fiddling exposes serious students of the violin to the technical nuances of traditional Old Time fiddling. In this book, violinist/fiddler Andrew Carlson provides a detailed technical analysis of Missouri-style fiddling, focusing primarily on the use of the bow. Carlson further offers a comparison of classical and non-classical techniques, a brief history of American fiddling, plus 23 traditional tunes with authentic bowing indications. A CD recording of the tunes is included.

Companion audio available by clicking on the 'Listen' link above, or at www.melbay.com.

    This is a detailed guide to playing the violin fiddle-style, with vigorous rhythm. Details on technique are in the first section of the book. The second part has excellent transcriptions of folk favorites such as "Old Joe Clark" and "Soldier's Joy." You do need to be at least...

    an intermediate player to play these full-speed at a lively tempo.
