Little Books of Fiddle Tunes

The LITTLE BOOKS OF FIDDLE TUNES were born from the frustration of buying book after book of music that I had to translate into something I could easily play. They are also my gift to other musicians out there … well, you do have to pay for them, but what you get are some wonderful tunes that are readily accessible to the Recreational Musician.

The books are 5.5 by 8.5 inches, small enough to fit into your fiddle case or backpack, while the musical notes are large enough to be read even if the book is on the floor beside your seat.

Father Kellys-S

So far response to these first three books of the series has been enthusiastic. All three books contain tunes that you might have heard as well as some other pieces that are new. All of then have been edited so that they are accessible to even a beginning musician and, with proper ornamentation, interesting for a more advanced musician to play. All the tunes are scored for a solo player.
