Instructional Recording: Fiddle Tunes (Reels) Volume 1
This recording is the first of what is planned to be a series of instructional recordings (e.g. reels, waltzes). The focus of these recordings is to guide the student through a host of arranging ideas in a systematic way. The recordings essentially mirror what I do in weeklong workshops or lessons. These recordings are geared primarily to intermediate and advanced but much of the material is appropriate for the advanced beginner.
This recording is a double CD of separate tracks of instructions for arranging and playing four fiddle tunes: North Carolina Breakdown, Oklahoma Rooster, Round the Horn and Eddie’s Reel. The ideas and techniques are applicable to many tunes. Written music with chords for each basic tune is included. Examples of full arrangements will be sent to you as PDFs after online purchase. Full Tracks include descriptions of:
