Quatrième de couverture

The fiddle, or violin, which first appeared towards the middle of the sixteenth century, has for many years been the instrument most widely used in the playing of Irish Traditional Music. It has had a significant influence on the melodic structure of many tunes and has played a central role in producing the repertoire we enjoy today.

This book explains and shows in detail the various techniques used by fiddle players in creating a traditional style of playing. All the information is presented in the context of the music itself, with numerous transcribed and recorded examples. For those unable to read music, a chapter on notation is included. Particular emphasis is given to bowing and ornamentation, with individual chapters devoted to Jigs, Slides, Polkas, Hornpipes, Airs and Reels. The book also attempts to convey something of the excitement felt in playing music which has a large degree of improvisation, albeit within certain bounds. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

OK, c'est en anglais. Mais si vous cherchez un livre sur le fiddle irlandais, celui-ci est cent coudées au-dessus de certains essais français approximatifs. Tout est décrit pas à pas, le répertoire est riche et varié, les exemples nombreux, une bible je vous dis ! A compléter avec la méthode en français de Daniel Gourdon pour la seule partie qui manque : des exercices progressifs pour amener la maîtrise des ornements et des coups d'archet (danielgourdon.musiquetrad.org).

A necessary addition to your collection 9 avril 2000
Par Susan Hinojoza - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you're interested in learning Irish fiddling you can't go wrong buying this book. Matt Cranitch is a true Irish fiddler and his book and tape set reflect his vast knowledge of the form. There is a section in this book for new fiddlers, but I wouldn't recommend it for absolute beginners because the pace of the book is rapid and the initial tunes are fairly difficult to play. However, if you've been playing Old Time or any other type of fiddling for awhile, you'll have no trouble.
Matt Cranitch excells at explaining and intorducing bowing and rhythmic styles as well as ornamentation. The last section of the book features 100 tunes so you'll have new stuff to play for a long time. The main section is broken down into chapters based on the type of tune--jig, reel etc., and each chapter introduces a new technical aspect for you to master. The section on slow airs is lovely, but I wish Matt would have provided some tips on vibrato rather than refer his readers to a teacher.
I recommend this book wholeheartedly. I also recommend that you buy Mel Bay's Complete Irish Fiddle Player by Peter Cooper, which is another excellent book. The two together should provide you with a good grounding in Irish fiddle.

Simply the Best 30 juin 2002
Par Edward - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have purchased a number of Irish fiddle materials over the last four years. I have played guitar for over 30 years and thought that I would try Irish fiddle. Of all the books and materials I have purchased, this is simply the best. The tunes are challenging, yet playable, (if you put some time in} even for a beginner. Mr. Cranitch's playing on the accompanying cassette is excellent, and the cassette makes for good listening on it's own. I would assume that an intermediate to accomplished violinist who wants to play Irish fiddle would find this book less challenging, but I am confident that he or she would enjoy it. For someone with no knowledge of the violin, it will be very challenging, and maybe discouraging. But, once you have the ability to play in tune in first position, and are comfortable and relaxed with your bowing, this is the book to buy.

Excellent Learning Tool 24 novembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have this fiddle book and it is very thorough. Matt is an excellent fiddle teacher. There is a CD and a cassette that goes with it, sold separately, usually at music stores. The CD is recommend so you can just hit the track button and replay a tune you're practicing rather than rewinding the tape cassette. Highly recommended for learning Irish fiddle.

Great, Comprehensive Reference 26 juin 2004
Par Emily - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
So you want to learn the Irish fiddle, eh? First find yourself a great teacher and start learning these tunes by ear! Second, pick up a copy of this book and the two CDs that go along with it--if you want to learn a tune on your own this book is a wonderful resource. All of the tunes (from reels to hornpipes to airs and everything in between) are written out with little more than the melody, so that you can personalize each one with ornamentation and bowing. Therefore, this book has a more authentic feel to it than many of the other books out there that seem to leave nothing to the imagination. Aditionally, the CDs offer a great sense of appropriate ornamentation and rhythm for many of the tunes. They are essential to truly making the most out of this book.
This book does offer an overview of basic fiddle technique and starts off with chapters on each seperate style of tune. The back section simply contains a wealth of tunes written out in standard musical notation. Honestly, I would recommend this book as a companion to lessons with a teacher, rather than a subsitute for them, in order to master the technical aspects of fiddle playing. But for most people this book will make a wonderfully comprehensive resource for building up your knowledge of very authentic Irish fiddle tunes. It is truly the best of its kind that I have ever used.

A Good Place to Start 22 mai 2009
Par John A. Raymond - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The rating could be misleading. It's a solid five-star package *if* you practice long and hard. Deduct stars if you don't have strong desire and discipline - no book is any good unless you actually do the work. This package can quickly and smoothly bring you up to a level of ability to begin playing with others, which is when the real learning always begins. There is no substitute for direct study with experienced players, but Matt's book would be a great tool in the hands of such a teacher, or a good way for you to prepare for such lessons. This material is not suitable for a complete beginner - a year of lessons based on one of the school methods such as Essential Elements seems a reasonable prerequisite.

Should you have experience with fiddle music yet lack access to a teacher with a brogue, this package can fill that need as well. There are a couple of other book / CD packages that are comparable, Paul McNevin's and Peter Cooper's, that might be helpful in that case since they'll give you additional explanations, alternative bowings, and so forth. The broader perspective would be very helpful.

Remember that it's ALL about the bow, and it only happens with *consistent* practice. But commit yourself to this course, and you *will* become a good Irish-style fiddler. Have a lot of fun!
