          Plenty of very short (1 minute each) pieces, just few longer ones. Easy violin staff added to all melodies, makes the book really versatile. Good backing tracks as usual in this series, however the optional easy violin recorded on backing is a little disadvantage to me. But overall it is still very interesting for a future celtic fiddler.
