Learn to Play Irish Fiddle
Learn to Play Irish
Learn to Play Irish Fiddle is a book and online audio that introduces the absolute beginner to the great traditional fiddle music of Ireland, going right from the basics of how to hold and make the first sounds on the instrument - through specially composed, manageable tunes in the Irish style - right up to playing traditional reels, jigs and other dance tunes from the traditional repertoire (the specially composed tunes bridge the gap between the basics and the traditional music). Embellishments and techniques that make good Irish fiddle playing so infectious, such as rolls, cuts, triplets and slides are gradually introduced. The student will also become familiar with some of the more advanced ideas concerning playing Irish traditional music such as variations and dynamics - subjects which are covered in greater detail in 'Irish Fiddle Playing: A Guide for the Serious Player' book/audio by the same author. Useful appendices and a cross-referenced glossary are also included. The accompanying audio download available online contain all the tunes in the book (played at a slow tempo) plus many exercises. There is NO NEED FOR ANY PRIOR MUSICAL KNOWLEDGE in order to use this book. Each aspect of playing and theory is covered in an accessible and manageable way.

On his second lesson, the legendary Kevin Burke takes you to the next level of Irish fiddle playing, with reference to the styles of Donegal, Clare, Kerry, Sligo and Brittany. The reels, jigs and gavottes he teaches are faster, more complex tunes than on lesson one, with wonderful variations and stylistic devices typical of the great traditional Irish fiddlers. You’ll learn to play a number of haunting tunes, including The Cottage Grove, Bonnie Kate, Jenny’s Chickens, The Man From Bundoran, The Rose in the Heather, Dan Collins' Father's Jig, The Miller Of Droghan, Connie O'Connell's, A Cup of Tea, Off To The Races and three Breton gavottes. Kevin breaks down each tune in detail, teaching the melody slowly and then analyzing the rolls, triplets, grace notes, bowing techniques, rhythmic timing, phrasing and other elements that make these dance tunes come alive. Although the emphasis of this lesson is naturally on Irish music, you’ll learn important fiddle techniques that will serve you well in any style you play.
