Book Description: Forty fiddle exercises to improve fingering and bowing. Randy has used his teaching experience and more than thirty years of fiddling to create a series of exercises tailored specifically to fiddlers and traditional fiddle music. By breaking down the musical elements of fiddling to its bowing-and-fingering basics, and working out a system of repetitive, focused practice on these basics, there is tremendous potential for progress. The fingering of the left hand in particular can be a great challenge, since most fiddlers are right-handed. Many of these exercises, therefore, focus on strengthening the left hand. The exercises have been created with typical fingering and bowing patterns in mind, ones encountered in many fiddle tunes. Add nimbleness and fluidity to your playing! These fiddle exercises are for all levels, novice through advanced.
