Learn some of the most important fiddle and violin styles in the world! With this book and the help of the practice CD, players will be guided through dozens of left- and right-hand exercises and tunes designed to help develop the feel of a variety of styles and ways they can be used for improvisation. Includes an introduction by Turtle Island String Quartet, and photos and quotes from dozens of musicians. Author Julie Lyonn Lieberman has also written Improvising Violin, You Are Your Instrument and Planet Musician, and has taught thousands of string players worldwide how to improvise through her workshops and private lessons.
