The Cajun Fiddle (Book + Online Audio)

Beginning with a section of easy arrangements of popular Cajun tunes, this book progresses to more difficult solos based on the playing of various fiddlers including Dewey Balfa, Michael Doucet, Doug Kershaw, and Rufus Thibodeaux. Cajun stylings, rhythms, double stops, slides, turns and trills, bowings, and tunings are discussed throughout the book. Fiddle and guitar are used in demonstrating the tunes in this book. Includes access to online audio containing recorded versions of most of the pieces in the book. The recorded versions are played at a slower tempo than typical performance speed to allow the listener to pick out details of the Cajun style.
