Herman Johnson Master Fiddler: 39 Solos-America's Legendy Fiddler

Herman Johnson Master Fiddler: 39 Solos-America's Legendy Fiddler edited by Jeanine Orme. For Fiddle. Squareback saddle-stitched, Solos. CD includes a selection of 12 songs from the book. Old Time. Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 120 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.97507BCD).

ISBN 9780786643592. Old Time. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

Transcribed and edited by one of Herman Johnson's former students, this book offers 39 solos in the inimitable smooth, precise, and innovative Johnson style. Inspired in his youth by Bob Wills of the Texas Playboys, Johnson learned tunes by listening to records and the radio. At 16, he successfully auditioned to play in Willis' band, but was then too young to join the musicians union. Johnson went on to a distinguished career as a performer and contest fiddler, winning the National Fiddling Championship in Weiser, Idaho five times, the only player to reign undefeated each year he entered the contest. He also won the Grand Masters Championship in Nashville. Many of the intermediate to advanced-level selections in this collection were drawn from Johnson's 1993 recording, Simply Perfect.

  • December 12, 2012 Herman Johnson, master fiddler

    Listening to the cd can be quite intimidating as the notes fly by in total perfection but learn a few phrases at a time. Learning these tunes is a long process of practice and patience.

  • April 01, 2011 Fantastic arrangements!

    I love this book because the arrangements are 2-4 pages long, and are transcribed note-for-note from Mr. Johnson's playing. I know, because I bought the book from Jeanine Orme at a fiddle lesson I took from her. She was Herman's student, and the one who...

    transcribed these tunes. This book is definitely not for beginners. You need to have played in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd positions, as they are all included. Also, there are quite a few double stops on the waltzes.
