Exploring Folk Fiddle

Instrumental Tutor | Tuition
Subtitle An Introduction to Folk Styles, Technique and Improvisation
Instrumentation Violin
Editor Chris Haigh
Publisher Schott Music London
Series Schott Pop-Styles

* This in-depth tutor book, from renowned fiddle player and teacher Chris Haigh, is perfect for classical violinists and fiddle players looking to master the art. * Covering all aspects of folk violin technique from ornamentation to modes and scales, and from scordatura to improvisation and composition. * The book is centred around Irish traditional music, but also dips into English, Scottish, Scandinavian, East European, Klezmer, Cajun and American Old-Time traditions. * Accompanied by a CD of all pieces performed by Chris Haigh with a live backing band. Folk fiddle and classical violin are as different as chalk and cheese. At first glance, folk might seem so simple it’s hardly worth bothering with. The tunes are often no more than 32 bars long, they stay in first position, and they don’t even have a composer. However, it’s what’s NOT written on the page that makes folk fiddle so interesting and challenging.This book attempts to explore, from general observation down to the finest detail, what the fiddler needs to know to bring these tunes alive. We need to understand their history and context, their purpose, their structure and pulse. And we need to be able to add all the stylistic elements that come not from reading the music, but from years of immersion in folk music, both listening and playing.Key areas covered include:* Tune types and structures * Ornamentation * Bowing * Modes and scales * Scordatura * Starts, endings and links * Variation, improvisation and composition Playing tunes in “sets” * Regional and individual style * Playing in sessions, for contests, and for dancing
