          Again great job from Ed Huws-Jones. We have plenty of short melodies and few longer (these are in my opinion the most interesting ones). All pieces are divided on Old Time, Bluegrass, Cajun and Texas style. The difficulty is intermediate. Optional easy violin staff added to each piece making the book really versatile. Backing tracks are of good quality-the only disadvantage for me is the optional easy violin recording.
