  • June 16, 2008 A great practice book for violin players

    At first I was disapointed in this book, but I already had another book by Larry McCabe and really enjoyed it.I kept on practicing and now can play most of the songs. It is enjoyable music. They are written for the violin, mostly in sharps which seems easier to...

    play with all the violin markings.
