From the rolling hills of Scotland to the lively streets of New Orleans and the steep slopes of Northeastern Brazil, the fiddle's influence on modern music bridges continents. In fact, it plays an integral role in defining the sound of countless genres, including classical, Forró, Irish folk and Cajun music. Since the early 16th century, an extensive range of music has been composed for the fiddle, which also means that you'll find a wide selection of tablature for the instrument. In this section alone, you'll find fiddle tablature to help you improve you technique and even songbooks that contain old-time American classics.
So what fiddle tablature book is right for you? That depends on how long you've been playing, and what songs you'd like to learn. As always, starting with the best sellers is a great way to kick off your search, and the Creative Concepts Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys - Greatest Hits (Songbook) is ideal for any fiddler who's a fan of the Kings of Western Swing.
