The American Fiddle Method, Volume 2 (Intermediate Fiddle Tunes and Techniques). Composed by Brian Wicklund. For Fiddle. Saddle-stitched, Methods. American Fiddle Method. Bluegrass & Country. Intermediate. Book/CD/DVD Set. 64 pages. Duration 118 minutes. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.99472SET).

ISBN 9780786678020. Bluegrass & Country. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

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.

The DVD supplement to his critically acclaimed American Fiddle Method Volume 2 continues and expands the skills introduced in Volume 1 and shares his pointers and shortcuts to help you learn to play the right stuff faster and better. Contents include: 27 intermediate/advanced tunes, rhythmic slur combinations; tricks for playing in tune; secrets of great tone; fluid bowing; backup and chops; playing in flatted keys; and powerful double stops.

    Great layout and easy to follow. Fun tunes with a CD for listening as you learn. The DVD is helpful too.
