The Cajun Fiddle Tune Book

By Deborah Greenblatt

Fiddle, Violin
Fiddle. Softcover with CD. Published by Centerstream Publications (HL.273).

Item Number: HL.273

ISBN 1574241052. 9x12 inches.

This collection of more than 30 Cajun tunes is intended as a stepping stone for those who are new to the Cajun tradition. Because it's difficult to adequately capture the spicy, unique flavor of Cajun music in standard music notation, the specific notes and bowings in this book are but suggestions; the spirit in the music is quite infectious, and quickly you will find your toes tappin', your fingers flyin', and your bow dancing! Includes a list of sources for Cajun recordings, a discography, and a bio of arranger Deborah Greenblatt.

    I didn't have the audio problem that another reviewer mentions. I thing the book/cd accomplishes everything it sets out to do: provide a bunch of Cajun tunes played on fiddle with accompanying transcriptions. I thought the tunes were good and useful for instruction. The transcriptions are accurate. This...

    is a fine book for learning the basics of Cajun fiddle and some good tunes.

    The music on the cd and the selection of tunes is great but the music on the cd has no introduction and is already in progress when the audio cuts in. This prevents the learner from following the audio on the sheet music in the book.
