A Fiddler's Book of Scotish Jigs from 18th & 19th Century by Charles Gore. Edited by Alastair Hardie. For Fiddle. Solos. Hardie Music Press. Scottish. Beginning-Intermediate. Book. 48 pages. Published by Hardie Press (MB.HP07). ISBN 9780946868216. Scottish. 8.25" x 11.75" inches. A great deal of Scottish fiddle music was collected and composed by individuals who have largely faded from memory, not because their work is in any way inferior, but simply because the collections they published have become very difficult to find. Whereas the better-known quote "fiddler-composers" (like Gow and Marshall) have been kept in the public eye by writes, artists, and the music publishing world, others are now all but forgotten. A reservoir of quite excellent dance music -- strathspeys, reels, quicksteps, as well as jigs-- remains to be rediscovered. This book contains music from a half-dozen of the lesser-known talents of the period 1780-1820. Call it a first step towards rekindling the quest for the hems of the Scottish repertoire. There is plenty more where these came from! All the music in this volume adheres to the composers' original published versions of the melodies, and adds chord symbols to supply the original "bass" part.

Learn to Play Irish Fiddle Book/2-CD Set Book/2-CD Set by Philip John Berthoud. For Fiddle. Methods. Celtic/Irish. Beginning-Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 120 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20555BCD). ISBN 9780786607785. Celtic/Irish. 8.75x11.75 inches. Learn to Play Irish Fiddle is a book and two CD set that introduces the absolute beginner to the great traditional fiddle music of Ireland, going right from the basics of how to hold and make the first sounds on the instrument - through specially composed, manageable tunes in the Irish style - right up to playing traditional reels, jigs and other dance tunes from the traditional repertoire (the specially composed tunes bridge the gap between the basics and the traditional music). Embellishments and techniques that make good Irish fiddle playing so infectious, such as rolls, cuts, triplets and slides are gradually introduced. The student will also become familiar with some of the more advanced ideas concerning playing Irish traditional music such as variations and dynamics - subjects which are covered in greater detail in "Irish Fiddle Playing: A Guide for the Serious Player" book/CD sets by the same author. Useful appendices and a cross-referenced glossary are also included. The accompanying CDs contain all the tunes in the book (played at a slow tempo) plus many exercises. There is NO NEED FOR ANY PRIOR MUSICAL KNOWLEDGE in order to use this book. Each aspect of playing and theory is covered in an accessible and manageable way.

Favorite Swedish Fiddle Tunes by Tom Gilland. For Fiddle & Violin. Solos. Fiddle Tunes. Beginning-Intermediate. Book. 40 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.98271). ISBN 9780786646807. Fiddle Tunes. 8.5x11 inches. Swedish fiddle music has been greatly influenced by the surrounding countries. Evidence of this can be found in the names of some types of tunes, such as Polska from Poland, Schottis (a schottische) from Scotland, and Engelska from England. Other popular types of tunes included in this collection are ganglat which is a kind of march, brudmarsch which is a wedding tune, skanklat which is played at weddings when gifts are given to the bride and groom, and vals (a waltz). With Swedish music being very much an aural tradition, there are almost as many versions of tunes as there are people who play them. For this reason, the notation does not include much ornamentation, leaving it up to the player. Second parts have been included with some of the tunes. Each tune includes a translation of the title.

Forget Me Not Book/2-CD Set. (A Collection of 50 Memorable Traditional Irish Tunes). By Seamus Connolly and Laurel Martin. For Fiddle. SongBook. Celtic/Irish. Beginning-Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 132 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.98684BCD). ISBN 9780786657162. Celtic/Irish. 8.75x11.75 inches. Seamus Connolly, a 10-time All-Ireland fiddle champion from County Clare, and Laurel Martin, a former prize pupil of Seamus and a highly respected teacher of Irish fiddling herself, have made Irish music thoroughly accessible to beginners and more advanced players alike in Forget Me Not: 50 Memorable Traditional Irish Tunes. The book's tunes are printed in basic and then in more ornamented notation, one after the other, and they are accompanied by two compact discs of playing, also in simple and then more-ornamented settings. This refreshing approach by Connolly and Martin enables individuals to learn and master the tunes at their own pace and interest level by sight, sound, or both, with one reinforcing the other for maximum retention and refinement. Complete with background notes on the tunes and a foreword from famed County Clare button accordionist Tony MacMahon, this impressive, practical, all-in-one package presents jigs, reels, hornpipes, marches, set dances, and slow airs in a way that's distinct from any other collection that's available today. It's a handy source of great Irish tunes and an invaluable resource for developing technique, something musicians can return to again and again for both instruction and enjoyment.

Scottish Fire. (Traditional and Original Tunes for Fiddle from 1762 to the Present). By Bonnie Rideout. For Fiddle. Solos. Maggie's Music. Scottish. Intermediate. Book. 56 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.99253). ISBN 9780786662791. Scottish. 8.75x11.75 inches. The fiddle has been popular in Scotland for over 500 years as an accompanying instrument for dance and song. Bonnie Rideout has been playing traditional Scottish fiddle music since the 1980s. This collection presents favorite tunes which Bonnie had stashed away over the years while awaiting the perfect opportunity to record them. The music written here ranges from J. Scott Skinner's Dr. Gordon Stable (a wonderful fiery reel she once played to garner her first national fiddling title as a young teenager), to Fear A Bhata (a heartbreaking air she has known as long as she can remember). These Scottish fiddle selections have been carefully transcribed from Bonnie's recording Scottish Fire. It would be impossible to write down all her bowings and every grace note, especially since they are not always consistent from one playing to the next. Readers should use this book as a basis for exploring their own voice within the music.
