Irish Tunes for the Young at Heart – Book I
Scott has created two collections of traditional Irish tunes for Young-at-Heart Fiddlers, Cellists and Violists, which he uses extensively in his teaching. Each collection is available in book form for fiddle, viola and cello, and each collection has been recorded on CD, as an aid to learning the tunes. NOTE: viola books are now out of print but you can still download the PDFs!
Book I Offered here Features 22 popular Irish session tunes arranged with harmony parts and guitar chords. Scott includes notes to musicians describing techniques for replicating an authentic Irish fiddling style. Teachers are encouraged to try the tunes in group ensembles and orchestra classes!
Book 1 CD includes all the fiddle and cello parts exactly as they appear in the book with guitar added. In addition to the performance.
