I’m a fan of fiddle tunes – old traditional instrumental tunes usually played on violin or other stringed instruments. I like to use them for practicing because they let me work on several things at the same time: rhythm, melody, scales, fingerings, and improvisation. They also broaden my repertoire of standards so I have new songs to play with other people.
If you play guitar, mandolin or fiddle and like the idea of learning some (new) fiddle tunes, I have something for you. I wrote down easy and intermediate versions of several fiddle tunes in TAB/sheet music, filmed them in slow and medium tempo and recorded a guitar playalong tracks for them. These materials are available for purchase from ATAmusic website as video bundles for guitar, mandolin, and fiddle.
I’m a musician who likes thinking about things around and talking with clever people. Sometimes I write something. You can learn more about me here or by following the social media links below.
