    Fiddler Try a Little Bluegrass!

    If you are already a violinist or a fiddler, this book and CD can teach you 'Bluegrass' fiddling. The book describes differences from classical violin playing such as the way the bow is held, phrasing, left hand slides, etc. The CD has over 60 tracks that play the music contained in the book. The written music includes melody, words, and break or backup lines in a variety of keys. The 'breaks' are for when the singer is not singing and the instrumentalists take over. (That's part of the bluegrass style!)
