: 20 Easy Tunes for the Beginning Fiddler

Beginning fiddlers! Learn easy versions of some of America's most-played fiddle tunes and join in any jam session- even if you've just started playing! In nearly three hours of detailed play-along instruction, master fiddler Jim Wood provides all the tools you'll need to learn your instrument and play tunes with skill and confidence.

Jim's careful tuition on bowing, noting, timing and other techniques will set you up for a lifetime of good fiddling. You'll learn how to play in several keys and will have plenty of opportunity to practice your tunes right along with Jim and Inge (on guitar and second violin). As you progress, you'll add increasingly more advanced elements to your repertoire to keep your fiddling fresh and challenging. 

Here are the tunes you'll soon be playing: 

Soldier's Joy, Sweet Betsy from Pike, Turkey in the Straw, Sally Goodin, Bile 'Em Cabbage Down, Little Liza Jane, Buffalo Gals, Sally Ann, Redwing, Sweet Hour of Prayer, Rubber Dolly, Fire on the Mountain, Arkansas Traveler, Southwind, Angeline the Baker, Sail Away Ladies, Down Yonder, Shady Grove, Cotton-Eyed Joe.
