Latest addition Auld Lang Syne and can also be found under the SHEET MUSIC link under the BEGINNERS menu.

Would it be possible to get "Minuet in G Major" by Bach?  I think that one is easy enough for me to play. :3

Awesome! It's really hard to find beginner music that isn't children's songs or regular exercises!

 

I thought that the roman numerals before were fingerings, but this also has number fingerings...what are the roman numerals for?

The roman numerals indicate which string to play on. Maybe I should remove or neglect putting them in. What do you think?

If you check up on the left hand corner you will see the description as to which number applies to which string. I would prefer leaving them out unless someone feels that they are useful.

How come SEVCIK Op. 6 in BEGINNERS is no longer clickable ?
I DL'ed it a week or so ago and it is pretty good from pg. 30 on but more intermediate than beginner. 

Does program remember that I already have it ?

It might be confusing but it is clickable. I can redo it in another way if you like.
How would you like me to have it? Would it help if I added the word Sevcik to the two titles? Good to see that some people have a hard time with this so that I can make it easy to see.
There are two books called band 1 and band 2

Alright, It's been a while since I posted anything under this topic.

I just finished Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” which I started on the way up to Montreal and finished on the way back to Fort Lauderdale.

Below you can see a few more of the "Fiddlerman.com" sheet-music versions with fingering suggestions and bowing suggestions.

I had never looked at your BEGINNERS sheet music before but I must say I'm impressed.  All the necessary details such as bow direction and fingering are there which I think are very important for the classical student to pay attention to.  Maybe, the Rossini music in 4 sharps is pushing the envelope a little dazed

But I like your not-so-simple Amazing Grace.  I heard something like that and was watching for the music.

 

A very worthwhile resource all together!

PS  Just found your Amazing Grace on YouTube.  That is certainly a super (drone) way to play it.  I really like that even though the song is way over-exposed in general.

Yes, but here come the issues.

What is "quick downbow retake" on Lady Gaga.   Bar #6.

My next question is about notation but not really.  Rather, I am checking how you think !  In bar 17 you have 2 adjacent up strokes which, I think break the dynamics of the passage.  But in bar 15 you have a rest and you could easily have started 16 with a down stroke and sailed right through to bar 18. 
I abhor bow markings as any decent fiddler would but I want to be sure that I'm not missing anything confused

(Love the Amazing Grace even though my 3rd position double stops need help.)

@ Oliver - Sometimes we take a quick retake to continue using a down-bow, which could be beneficial to start a phrase. In this case you have time to breath and retake the down-bow for a new start.

You can slur two down bows on the 1st two eighth notes if you prefer. Players usually play better accents on a down-bow so I was setting up the pick-up for that down-bow. You have a good point and these are just suggestions. I wrote this on the plane kind of quickly without a fiddle in my hand.

As far as starting a second eighth note with a down bow, This can be confusing for some people and it is more customary for fiddle players to play down on the beat. Therefor I try to find a bowing that would suit most.

You can also play back and forth from 16, starting up, and continue to bar 20.

You have the right idea analyzing the bowings to find what works best for the music and phrasing. This is exactly what I want players to do. Analyzing my bowings is also a way to learn. What works for some doesn't necessarily work for others.

Thanks for these free pieces! I do appreciate playing a few songs that do not resemble twinkle twinkle little star.

You're welcome. Everyone welcome to come up with suggestions as I plan on adding arrangements on a regular basis.
