In his preface, the author reminds the reader that this is not a book for the absolute beginner. Even the experienced player may not "get it" on first reading a given tune, but "You can expect to enjoy the process of learning...[and experience] the joy of recreating a traditional tune, of making it your own." This is the teacher/student pact in effect throughout this marvellous book, written for the literary as much as the musical connoisseur. Although no classical Violin experience is needed, you will need to know how to hold the Fiddle and bow, and be able to play at least simple tunes in the first position.

This book explains and shows in detail the various techniques used by fiddle players in creating a traditional style of playing. All the information is presented in the context of the music itself, with numerous transcribed and recorded examples, available exclusively online. It is aimed not only at the beginner, but also the fiddle-player (and indeed violinist) with some knowledge and experience who wishes to learn more. For those unable to read music, a chapter on notation is included. Particular emphasis is given to bowing and ornamentation, with individual chapters devoted to jigs, slides, polkas, hornpipes, airs and reels. The book also attempts to convey something of the excitement felt in playing music which has a large degree of improvisation, albeit within certain bounds. The online demonstration audio, which features a large selection of the transcribed tunes and ornaments performed by Cranitch, is an invaluable aid to learning, as it allows the listener to hear how the music and ornamentation should sound.
