A Guide to American Fiddling exposes serious students of the violin to the technical nuances of traditional Old . Mr. Carlson might be a good teacher, I don't know. But attributes he ascribes to "classical" musicians are really people with a terrible ear and poor technique to begin with

A Guide to American Fiddling exposes serious students of the violin to the technical nuances of traditional Old Time fiddling. But attributes he ascribes to "classical" musicians are really people with a terrible ear and poor technique to begin with. So, the book plods along like a long-winded essay about why classical violinists can't play fiddle that doesn't teach anything, and some of the written examples are written "wrong" to someone who is actually musically literate - like, notes that should not be in 16th notes are, so it mucks up the understanding of how to articulate the phrasing.

In this book, violinist/fiddler Andrew Carlson provides a detailed technical analysis of Missouri-style fiddling, focusing primarily on the use of the bow. Carlson further offers a comparison of classical and non-classical techniques, a brief history of American fiddling, plus 23 traditional tunes.

arrived in good shape thanks

Target is classical violin players who want to play Bluegrass. Perhaps. I am not one, but listening to my teacher playing these arrangements didn't convince me. Boring diddling/fiddling without composition or idea. Eh.

This is an excellent book (and CD). Really one of the best I've found on fiddle technique. The author gives detailed instruction on developing an authentic fiddle sound. The main point of reference is classical violin technique, and he compares and contrasts a fiddlers technique to that, so appropriate changes can be adapted. I'm guessing that is why one of the reviewers was offended. But the author does not criticize classical training. He is a classical player himself! He simply compares the differences so we can know why a fiddler sounds different than a violinist. Differences in the way we hold the bow, the bow stroke, flexibility of the wrist, and several other contrasts are pointed out. This is not for a beginner. The music is quite advanced, and the CD is one of the best fiddle CDs I have ever heard. I regularly listen to the CD, and it is obvious that the author is quite accomplished. The instruction is concise and useful. BTW, my background is classical training on trumpet with lots of public performance, then later guitar and bass with over two decades of regular performance,... then violin. I'm thoroughly versed in music theory and performance. I can confidently say that this is one of the better instruction books I have owned, and I have dozens, for several instruments.

The tunes in this book, while well chosen and nicely executed, are played at lightening speed and therefore are of extremely limited use to the student. If Mr. Carlson had limited his offerings and used the resulting space to play each piece at a slow, or even moderate rate, he would have created a useful learning tool. As it is, these performances just make the students head spin, wishing a more systematic approach and a slower pace would have been used.

I bought this book as a professional violinist and teacher, and found it to be wonderfully detailed in regards to how to achieve a fiddle sound. The author gives a basic history of American fiddling, and then outlines fiddle techniques with many musical examples and written descriptions. As a classical player venturing into the world of fiddle, this book provides an excellent overview and many examples with which to practice. Highly recommend!

I made the mistake of buying this book at a fiddle festival and am very disappointed. Mr. Carlson might be a good teacher, I don't know. But attributes he ascribes to "classical" musicians are really people with a terrible ear and poor technique to begin with. So, the book plods along like a long-winded essay about why classical violinists can't play fiddle that doesn't teach anything, and some of the written examples are written "wrong" to someone who is actually musically literate - like, notes that should not be in 16th notes are, so it mucks up the understanding of how to articulate the phrasing. So, if you can read music and are looking for a book that you can translate easily into fiddle performance, using this will be a stretch. He should have looked at Stacy Phillips or Gene Lowinger to see how these things should be written out, first. But maybe if he wrote them out in a way that a classical musician would understand them, he'd be giving away the farm -- there would suddenly be a bunch of skilled musicians who could perform this stuff right out of the gate! (I guess that would mess up his territory)

Having been classically trained, I will give him this -- that many people who would not make it as musicians otherwise, can make it in the classical world because they learn how to play what's on the page correctly, which makes up for a lack of talent. But they give classical musicians a bad name, and they're no fun to listen to anyway. The best musicians, classical or otherwise, can usually do and hear anything you throw their way!
