I forgot I had this book/cd combo bookmarked - I have WAY too many bookmarks! 🤣

"King's Lament - Old Time Fiddle Duets", from David Bragger & Susan Platz - transcribed by Jeff Hollingsworth.  76 pages of Double Fiddling!

https://oldtimetikiparlour.com.....cd-bundle/

Everything from the CD is supposed to be in the book. 

Here's the playlist for the CD - you can listen to all of them, starting here:

I thought the videos on this site were kinda neat.  Gives context to some of the fiddle tunes.  Theres some instructional videos of different dances and music.  Theres also some sheet music of the tunes played with suggested bowings, slurs, etc..

This link (above) takes you to great Dance info and free Duet sheet music in pdf form!  

Violin 1 & 2 parts for these tunes: 

Arkansas Traveler 

Cuckoo's Nest 

Cotton-eyed Joe 

Cumberland Hornpipe 

Oh Susanna

Have a Happy New Year!

Some of the trills in this Duet arrangement of "Mockin' Bird Hill" (TheViolinPlace) had me ROFL - sooo FUN! 

 

I just did a 'Duet' search at this site (TheViolinPlace), where there are also string quartet arrangements.  There's quite the variety here.
