Continuing the reissue of the classic Phillips Collection of Traditional American Fiddle Tunes - Volume 2, Favorite American Listening Pieces, Two Steps and Marches for Fiddle presents over 120 classic and lesser-known fiddle tunes from all parts of the United States, some with multiple versions.
This treasure trove gathers many of mysterious and lonesome sounding, sometimes twisty, but always beautiful melodies that don't neatly fit into the typical fiddle categories, yet are some of the melodies most beloved by fiddlers.
All the pieces are transcribed from performances of the greatest traditional fiddlers of the past and present including Kenny Kosek, Pete Sutherland, Eck Robertson, Bruce Greene, Hoyt Ming, Jere Canote, Luther Strong, John Salyer, Clark Kessinger, Kenny Baker, Howdy Forrester, John Hartford, and dozens more.Bowings and chord accompaniment are included. This book will also be of value to students of classical music and Suzuki trained children. The tunes can serve as fun changes-of-pace from the drudgery of scales and arpeggios. And they illustrate America's great tradition of fiddling.
