Part of the American Fiddle Method, this book has been devised by expert fiddlers Brian Wicklund and April Verch to teach fiddlers the Canadian style.
The American Fiddle Method - Canadian Fiddle Styles delves into the dynamic world of Canadian fiddling. This highly anticipated book is suitable for beginning to intermediate-level players and explores Canada's rich fiddle traditions including Old Time Canadian, French Canadian, Cape Breton and Metis.
More than just a collection of great tunes, this book demystifies common ornaments and bowing patterns used in Canadian fiddling. The authors teach the simple melody to reels, jigs, hornpipes, waltzes, schottisches, airs and strathspeys and demonstrate how to create variations using the skills in the book.
The included play-along audio tracks are great for listening, as well as helping you to create a professional-sounding performance.
