This collection presents traditional Cajun tunes for fiddle in a simplified manner. The songs all include basic staff notation in the keys of A, D, and G, which are the simplest keys for a beginning student. Each piece has finger notation undereach note, enabling the new violinist to play confidently. Quarter notes and half notes are the primary notes used, with a few eighth notes added in the last few pages.
The accompanying CD presents each song in the book, with an accompaniment that resembles the sounds of a Cajun band. The lively accompaniments will help the student with melody and rhythm, as well as give the musician the confidence that comes from playing with a band. The tunes are performed at a slower rate for practice and at a faster rate for performance.
