Fiddle - Beginning
Composed by Craig Duncan. Squareback saddle-stitched, Methods. You Can Teach Yourself. All Styles. Book/CD/DVD Set. 80 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.94430SET).

Item Number: MB.94430SET
ISBN 9780786631964. All Styles. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

Designed for beginning fiddle students, these 36 lessons present basic techniques by applying them to fiddle tunes. Reading music is unnecessary, as the lessons are explained step by step, and fingerings are given for every note. Each version builds on the previous one and helps students to create their own arrangements. Includes a split- track CD. Forty-eight songs from the book are on the CD.

The DVD with this set is designed to complement the first 17 lessons of the You Can Teach Yourself Fiddling text. Covers tuning, holding the fiddle and bow, left-hand position, basic A, D, and G scales, shuffle bowing, slurs, double stops, and many tunes, including "Liza Jane," "Shortening Bread," "Going to Boston," and "Bile Them Cabbage Down.

    This is one of the best teach yourself sets that I have ever bought. Not only am I using it, but my son is also. We have already learned to play several songs.
