You can't learn Old Timey fiddle from anyone just anywhere. I first went to classical violin instructors who were clueless (even though they were in Asheville, NC). I tried to pick it up from recordings and YouTubes, but got completely frustrated. Yup, I had almost given up hope entirely, till I found this book. "Old Time Fiddle for the Complete Ignoramus" immediately became the Old Timey Rosetta Stone I had been longing for. The author is clearly intimately acquainted with Old Timey culture, so really knows of what he speaks. His lessons are easy to follow, contain just enough that's relevant about music theory and are colored by fascinating bits of history. Suffice it to say, his seasoned explanation of how to hold the instrument could not have been given by a classical violin instructor. If you want to ramp up from clueless about Old Time Fiddling to WATCH ME in a really short time - this is the book for you.
