Steve Parker and Alan Davis have released a new book of tunes for fiddlers and mandolinists. 150 Hot Tunes for Fiddle & Mandolin contains a mix of American and International tunes transcribed from recordings by notable players, plus a number of classical pieces.
Some of the artists included are: Dave Bing, Rayna Gellert, Brad Leftwich, James Leva, Bruce Molsky, Rafe Stefanini and Tom Sauber, among others.
An accompany audio CD includes MP3 examples of each tune, output from the transcription software from MIDI sound sources. The book also features a complete discography of the recorded sources, and is carefully indexed. Biographical information on some of the prominent artists whose music is transcribed is included, along with suggested sources for further research.
Both the book and CD are sold as a package for $35, and orders can be placed from Steve Parker’s web site.
