Description

The book is designed to make the personal aspects of traditional Irish fiddle playing, improvisation and interpretation, accessible to novice players.

Drawing on his experience writing out reels, jigs and other tunes for new players at a North London session and teaching fiddle, the author conveys what to do with tunes to make them your own.

The first part of the book discusses such subjects as the "language" of traditional music, posture, bowing, and effective practice, with a detailed analysis of left and right hand technique. The second section is a selection of tunes that demonstrate the ideas in the first part.

The aim of the book is to allow the player to look more closely at their technique while also improving accuracy and speed. A recording adds an extra dimension to the learning experience.

Written at the level of someone who has several years experience of playing the violin/fiddle. Very useful notes on bowing and playing ornamentations are included since it is extremely important to get this right in this sort of music. The accompanying CD provides excellent illustration of how the reels, jigs and hornpipes contained in the book should sound. All in all, a valuable introduction to Irish fiddle playing.
