Product Overview

This book contains transcriptions of selections from three of Natalie MacMaster's albums: "A Compilation, " "Fit as a Fiddle, " and "No Boundaries." These tunes were selected because the fiddling was easily heard over the accompaniment and the tune settings were reasonably transferable to standard music notation. Important but subtle details, such as mini-accents, as well as drastic components consisting of intense dynamic swings, explosive bow attacks, and changes in phrasing of what are notated as eighth notes, have been omitted from this book because the music would be too dense to read with any ease. The album source and particular cut are indicated at the beginning of each tune. ©2001, 64 pages.
