The American Fiddle Method Vol. 2 Piano Accompaniment by Brian Wicklund and Bob Walser. For Keyboard (Piano). Methods. American Fiddle Method. Bluegrass & Country. Beginning. Book. 72 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.99472PA). ISBN 9781840038774. Bluegrass & Country. 8.75x11.75 inches. Private studio teachers, school string programs and Suzuki teachers preparing for recitals will welcome these tasteful piano accompaniments for the violin, viola and cello editions of Volume 2 of Brian Wicklund's American Fiddle Method. Acknowledged as the most widely used fiddle method in the country, Wicklund became aware of the increasing demand for a parallel piano accompaniment series and engaged his friend Bob Walser to take on the task of writing it. Collaborating closely with Wicklund, Walser was encouraged to adhere to the chord progressions suggested in the original books, but given leeway to add interesting variations in rhythm and harmony. The result is a book of arrangements that welcomes pianists to the jamming circle. Piano playing teachers, parents and siblings can now join in the fun, and fiddle tunes can be featured in concerts and recitals with the support of an accompanist. In addition, principals of accompaniment learned by playing these arrangements can be applied to accompanying other tunes, the voice or other instruments. The American Fiddle Method itself provides the beginner with the elements needed to become a proficient fiddler. Based on many years of teaching experience, the author introduces concepts and techniques that yield solid results. This method encourages creativity in the student by including variations of the tunes to illustrate how they can serve as a basis for improvisation.

Favorite vocal pieces such as "A Man of Constant Sorrow," "Angel Band," "Keep on the Sunny Side," and "Will the Circle be Unbroken," are included along side hot instrumentals such as "Jerusalem Ridge," "Rawhide," "Big Mon," and "Blue Grass Stomp." Even traditional tunes that you think you know already such as "Bill Cheatham," "Farewell to Whiskey," "Forked Deer," and "Salty Dog" are given a new twist when presented as a typical bluegrass 'break.' Intermediate players and above will enjoy the challenge of learning more complicated versions of common tunes and performing them at the high-speed tempo that is expected in bluegrass music. Players are encouraged to use these examples of bluegrass breaks merely as a starting point. Improvisation is a key component in playing bluegrass style and players will enjoy experimenting with their own creations. Each tune has guitar chords notated above the music staff.

Bluegrass. 8.75" x 11.75" inches. The First Jam series was created to give children and beginners of all ages a book of simple, common tunes to learn.

So get your friends or family who play guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, dulcimer or Dobro together, grab these books and start jamming. Improvisation - Another idea behind writing the First Jam series was to provide a number of tunes that were easy to learn, but that are also a great to begin working on improvising. Each books offer the melody for that particular instrument as well as back-up chords for another instrument to accompany you. Each song is represented in notation with chord symbols. The accompanying CD has two tracks for each song. The first playing the song with the melody line, the second track offers just the backup so you can play the melody over it or even improvise. Tunes include: Cripple Creek, Old Joe Clark, Will the Circle Be Unbroken and many more.
