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 presents a general survey of American Fiddling. The author's intent is to teach the basics of Fiddling by beginning with essential bowings and fingerings, and progressing from simple to more complex renditions of tunes.

The author has attempted to present usable fingerings, bowings and explanations of each of the 49 tunes in this book. The end result is the most widely-used Fiddle-method available! The online audio is in split-track format, allowing the fiddler to play with the Fiddle solo, Guitar and/or Fiddle accompaniment, or both! Contains every tune in the book.
