For many years I have been developing a simple and methodical curriculum to inspire people to learn to play fiddle. Fiddle School Volume 1 contains the 24 tunes I teach in Session 1 of my online academy. The program is designed for first-time fiddlers, players new to the style, or if you have taken a break from playing and are ready to jump back in.
The tunes are all traditional and include Civil War songs, Celtic melodies played in a Texas style and classic pop songs from the 1940s. All of these tunes are a breakdown, waltz or tune of choice in the Texas style fiddling repertoire. I have included the chords to each song for your buddies who play guitar, piano or bass. Four of the tunes have twin fiddle harmonies, so invite your friends over to share the gift of music with this small book.
