Here's a beautiful & popular tune of the time, "Melody Of Love" by Hans Engelmann (1872-19140 - who emigrated from Germany to the US.

This is my idea of Parlor Music - based on what I've seen in old films. 

"Melody of Love" - includes both, slow practice Violin play-along AND also the separate piano accompaniment play-along score (Strummi).

There are many great tunes in this thread that are perfect for fiddlers in their first few years of playing.

Geez, almost couldn't find where I stuck this thread! 

Having a bit of a Cricket infestation on the forum right now... found an interesting song/waltz from 1884 by James E. Stewart, that is listed at the Library of Congress as being a popular song of that time - "The Cricket On The Hearth".  

So, think it's a good Parlor tune prospect to try.  Two pages, the lyrics are a little meloncholy and doesn't appear to be associated in any way with the Charles Dickens story or the fiddle tune.  Includes piano accompaniment.

...I haven't tried it, yet.
