Designed as a follow-up to Volume 1, Volume 2 addresses such important skills as: 1) expanding a basic repertoire of common intermediate-level tunes, 2) learning to use low first position, 3) mastery of bowing down on the beat and corrective slurring, 4) artistic slurring, 5) understanding basic music theory, and 6) learning double-stop backup combinations. Some students who have studied violin or fiddle music before may be able to skip Volume 1 and start with Volume 2, assuming they are proficient at skills such as proper violin and bow placement and can play a small repertoire of fiddle tunes with good tone and intonation.

    Wow! There is no other word for that method! Just before last Christmas I bought AMF volume 1 and it is the best method believe me. After a couple of weeks, I bought AMF volume 2 and it is just as great as the first one. I totally recommand this...

    method to everybody!
