20 Spanish Baroque Pieces by Gaspar Sanz. (Arranged for Uke). By Rob MacKillop. For Ukulele (Soprano). Solos. Spanish. Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 40 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.22128BCD). ISBN 9780786683321. Spanish. 8.75" x 11.75" inches. Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) is the most famous baroque-period guitarist. His works are tuneful and memorable, with fiery cross-rhythms and cascading scale passages. He published three books of guitar music. The baroque guitar could be viewed as a close relative of the ukulele. Indeed, the two instruments have much in common. The smaller four-course guitar actually had the same tuning as the ukulele, for example, although it was largely double-strung. Sanz enjoyed playing scales in the campanella style, with the notes of a scale set out on different strings, sonically overlapping slightly in the style of little bells. This is a technique the ukulele excels at, and is used to good effect in these arrangements. Sanz' music for baroque guitar transfers exceptionally well to the uke, as these arrangements demonstrate. It is hoped that this repertoire will bring a refreshing addition to the repertoire of the ukulele, just as the little instrument can bring a freshness to these old but lively pieces.

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.
