By Deborah Greenblatt

Violin Duet Violin Duet (violin 1, violin 2)
Arranged by Deborah Greenblatt. Spiral-bound. Tunes for Two. Irish Folk. Tune book. With Standard Notation. Greenblatt & Seay #BVN2OCFTFTV. Published by Greenblatt & Seay (GS.BVN2OCFTFTV).


8.5 x 11 inches.

This wonderful collection of Irish melodies contains 32 tunes composed by the great blind 17th century Irish harpist and poet, Turlough O'Carolan. Guitar chord symbols for accompaniment are included. There is even information in the back of the book about O'Carolan, and the tunes, to help folks understand how and why O'Carolan composed them.

Each of the Fiddle Tunes for Two collections consists of individual spiral-bound books presented in score form with melody on the top line and harmony beneath. Individual books are available for Violins, Violas, Cellos, Basses, and Mandolins. The tunes in each book of each series are in the same keys and include guitar chords. For instance, a violinist and a cellist could play a wedding together if they each had the appropriate Wedding Fiddling for Two book. These books work particularly well for private lessons where teacher and student can take turns playing lead and harmony parts.

    I've had this book for a few weeks and I really enjoy it. I haven't had a chance to play any of them as a duet yet. I've been playing violin for about 6 years and started as an adult. I love playing celtic tunes and have...

    other good celtic books like Celtic Music for Violin. I picked this one because I was looking for some new tunes that were not too simple. Particularly I wanted a nice version of O'Carolan's Concerto, which this book has. Celtic Music for Violin is rated intermediate, so I'd say this one is as well.
