This book is part of an instrumental series arranged for Violin, Viola, and Cello. The arrangements are completely compatible with each other and can be played together or as solos. Each book contains a carefully edited part that is appropriate for the Level 2--3 player, as well as a fully orchestrated accompaniment recording. The recording includes a DEMO track of each song, which features a live instrumental performance, followed by a PLAY-ALONG track. Also included is Alfred's tempo-changing software for practice. Titles: 25 or 6 to 4 * Don't Stop Believin' * Gimmie Some Lovin' * Go Your Own Way * Hotel California * In the Midnight Hour * Open Arms * Roundabout * (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction * Spirit in the Sky * Stairway to Heaven * Sunshine of Your Love.
As most musicians can attest, sometimes sheet music can oversimplify a familiar song, rendering it hard on the ears. However, Alfred Music has done a tremendous job arranging these pieces.

    Its not a solo but the voice medley you play. Songs are well known and fun. Piano part much harder then violin part. CD has demo and back up tracks.
