The Phillips Collection of Traditional American Fiddle Tunes, 646 reels, hoedowns, and breakdowns in all styles, multiple levels
- Compiled, transcribed and edited by Stacy Phillips
- Mel Bay Publications
Meticulously collected from recordings, square and contra dances, fiddle contests, jam sessions and individual fiddlers- this book is meant to provide a snapshot of what American fiddlers were playing and listening to in the latter part of the 20th Century. As the vinyl record format has disappeared from the marketplace, a great deal of recorded fiddle music will no longer be available. In this book, Stacy Phillips shares the fruits of some timely collecting for all fiddlers to enjoy. Bowings, fingerings, and guitar chords are provided for each melody line.
