Overview

Continuing the reissue of the classic Phillips Collection of Traditional American Fiddle Tunes - Volume 2, Favorite American Waltzes for Fiddle presents over 110 classic and lesser-known country waltzes from all parts of the United States, some with multiple versions. All the pieces are transcribed from performances of the greatest traditional fiddlers of the past and present including Benny Thomasson, Howdy Forrester, J. T. Perkins, Lloyd Wanzer, Jay Ungar, Vivian Williams, Skip Gorman, Texas Shorty, Kenny Baker, and dozens more. Bowings and chord accompaniment are included. This book will also be of value to students of classical music and Suzuki trained children. Teachers, are you looking for short pieces that will solidify scales yet won't bore your students? Tired of the same old classical etudes? Waltzes are played slowly enough to not be intimidating but also serve as effective and fun exercises for all violin students, not just fiddlers. The arrangements range from easy (single notes, first position) to advanced (double stops and upper positions). And they illustrate America's great tradition of fiddling.
