Fiddle Tunes for Beginning Cello

Cello - Beginning
Composed by Stacy Phillips. Saddle-stitched, Solos. Fiddle Tunes. Book/CD Set. 40 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.98152BCD).

Item Number: MB.98152BCD
ISBN 9780786648290. Fiddle Tunes. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

This book contains a selection of fiddle tunes arranged for the beginning cello player. The idea is to supply a sampling of melodies that will give almost instant gratification to the novice. One of the drawbacks of the classic way of teaching cello is the boredom of some of the early pedagogic repertoire. This book is meant to be an antidote to that tedium. Fiddle tunes are great ways to become accustomed to typical manipulations of major scales and to introduce the sound of arpeggios. The only technical requisite for the music is the ability to play a major scale of some sort. The tunes were chosen for their fun melodic content while demonstrating some typical aspects of fiddling. They are grouped by key with a couple of exceptions and roughly arranged in order of difficulty within each key group. The included split-track CD demonstrates many of the tunes with guitar accompaniment and will help teach the swing phrasing.
