    Difficulty Level:
  • April 01, 2009 Not what I thought it would be.

    Even after listening to samples I still have been unable (or wanted to) play the tunes. The fiddle playing often tries to mimic a bag pipe. If you like that sound then you will probably like the book - but get the cd to help you create the sound. Not for...

    me but others may like it.

    Difficulty Level:
  • February 11, 2009 Beautiful Celtic Tunes

    I have been studying violin for over 20 years -- mostly classical but enjoy Celtic ballads such as Ashokan Farewell and the Lord of the Rings for violin. I also liked Bonnie Rideouts's Christmas music. This book Celtic Circles offers a good variety of both fast and slow fiddle pieces...

    . What I like most about this book is the easy way the pieces have been arranged so that in fingering the violin, the notes just seem to flow together. Two pieces are particularly moving: "Lament on the Death of Sor Blanca Maria" and the great duet "My Love Is Gone To Sea".
