This book provides a thorough introduction to Cajun music for fiddle players of all levels of ability.
Beginning with a selection of easy arrangements of popular Cajun tunes, The Cajun Fiddle progresses on to more difficult solos based on the playing of various well-known fiddlers including Dewey Balfa, Michael Doucet, Doug Kershaw, and Rufus Thibodeaux.
This book covers Cajun stylings, rhythms, double stops, slides, turns and trills, bowings and tunings. Fiddle and Guitar are used to demonstrate the tunes on the accompanying online audio tracks. Covering 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.
