Have you checked out the beginners sheet music on his site here? I think Ode to Joy is a great one. You can find many versions online to listen to and play along with. Try it and let these forum members know what you think.

Or even easier, is the "Joy to the world" 

It's just a descending scale on the beginning of the song and minor movements on the rest.

Or.... Twinkle,Twinkle wink

Great idea. Simple Gifts should be real easy.

And Christmas is just around the corner. That should interest lot's of fiddlers.

Hello,

Just wanted to add my 2 cents here.

When i first bought my violin at the pawn shop, I looked around for a book to help me learn. I picked up "You can teach yourself Fiddling" by Mel Bay. It's an ok book and has a lot of good tunes in it.

Along with "Twinkle, Twinkle" and so on, there are a few other really cool beginner songs.

Camptown Races

Liza Jane

Buffalo Gals (my favorite)

Shortnin' Bread

Oh, Susanna

Dixie

These are some really nice tunes for violin. Most of these are in the key of G, D or A, so they're easy to play.

Then a search on the internet brought up this http://musiced.about.com/od/fr......htm.There is a list of some free sheet music here.

If you have quicktime installed the site will even play the tune for you. I imagine you can find even more looking around.

Just a few ideas...

Love,

Tilly
