Reviews - What do customers think about Mel Bay You Can Teach Yourself Fiddling Book (You Can Teach Yourself) (You Can Teach Yourself)?

It moves too fast!  May 15, 2008
I'm a big fan of the "You can teach yourself..." books. This one however moved too fast for someone who has never touched a fiddle. It gives no instruction for the bow, and that's important. I still read it and continue to try.
You Can teach yourself fiddling  Jan 8, 2008
This is a concise, fun way of looking uint fiddling - I had never done any of it before and am now going to play in a talent show jam!
Moves quickly  Jun 27, 2001
I like this book. It is well-organized and contains all of the material you need (other than the CD or tape) to start fiddling. It discusses each of the scales and gives an illustration of the fingering for each note on each scale. It does help, however, to have some introduction to the violin before you start this book. Also, the book moves very quickly from very basic fiddling to pretty complex techniques. There are 36 lessons and time signatures and pick-up notes appear in Lesson 7, while double stops appear in Lesson 13. Nevertheless, I was able to work through the first part of the book and found it an enjoyable experience.
