This book is for beginning and intermediate fiddlers. No prior playing experience or note reading ability is required. The solos are written in both standard notation and tablature. While writing the arrangements, the author considered the small hands of children. Each tune is in the first position. Most of the notes are on the first three strings and there are no bowings or fingerings that present inordinate technical difficulties.

Every song in the book is included on the companion CD. The tunes are recorded at a moderate speed, and include count-off notes and rhythm guitar accompaniment.
