Celtic Fiddle Tunes from Basic Fiddlers Philharmonic
by Andrew H. Dabczynski & Bob Phillips


Alfred's Fiddler's Philharmonic series has developed out of a love for fiddle music in all its many forms and styles. Basic Fiddlers Philharmonic: Celtic Fiddle Tunes presents a set of tunes that sound great with beginning string players. These Celtic Fiddle Tunes have roots in Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish-American folk music, as well 19th Century popular music. They often can be sung with fun and easy words. With Basic Fiddlers Philharmonic: Celtic Fiddle Tunes, beginning string players will develop critical string-playing skills, and also learn how to improvise, arrange, and create satisfying musical presentations both alone and with friends. Students with various levels of ability can learn the tunes and play them together using the unique and effective Fiddlers Philharmonic format. Students can play along with the recording.

Following some historical background, each tune is presented in a basic, simplified version intended for the beginning player. Where appropriate, words are provided so students can sing along. A more advanced version of the tune appears next, with some musical variations that are designed to challenge and motivate students. A back-up part is then provided where students can improvise simple accompanying harmonies and rhythms using the printed parts as a departure point. All parts can be played together in any combination. The last page of the book provides students with additional simple-but-effective ideas for fiddling improvisation.

Difficulty: A1-2 (Apprentice Rating: Beginner)
