hi guys.. sorry I've been awol for a while.. lots of "life events" going on.. but I'm back on a regular schedule and back to my fiddle lessons :) Having said that.. we got the music for the "Plaza Polka" tonight and I had it pretty good before leaving class.. but once I got home.. I couldn't remember the tune to save my life.. I can play the notes.. but they don't sound like any song LOL Does any one know this tune and is willing to post a video of themplaying it or know where I can hear the song? I'm stuck and frustrated .
thanks!

Check out the Vancouver Fiddle Club website. I often find notation for Patti Kusturok tunes at that website. Use the Fiddlers Companion website database when looking for information about fiddle tunes.

I had forgotten about that site. My site has been updated for a long time. Since that post above I started transcribing bluegrass and old time tunes, which is now the real point of the site.

Hi all, I've got some tunes up on my website as well, if that's helpful, mostly in the New England/contra style with some other tunes here and there. As I put up new things I'm pretty careful to make sure the sheet music, audio, finger chart, and lesson are all the same notes, though in some of my older things I ended up occasionally playing a few different notes from what I had in the music. I hope it's helpful! I'm also always open to suggestions of good repertoire (in the public domain) to add to the site so feel free to contact me with requests through my site contact page.

I don't like midi files. I prefer using recordings from CDs and/or downloading music from Youtube. IMHO, midi's don't accurately capture the "feel" of the music. I have lots of books with fiddle notation, but "The Craig Duncan Master Fiddle Solo Collection " has enough high quality notation to keep someone busy for years. No recording with that book though. Probably too many copyright considerations.

If you do buy the book, have it spiral bound. Then the book will be easier to use and last much longer.

Every once in awhile this thread gets revived. My site now has well over 100 transcriptions of fiddle tunes, most of which are linked directly to the source recording.

When I want to become familiar with the melody for a tune, I go to Youtube, find a version I like, and listen to that. The first step in learning a tune is memorizing the melody.

For some styles of fiddling, there are quite a few fiddle repertoire books available. And some books contain quite a few tunes. Generally speaking, the quality of the notation in the books is better than the free notation, and unlike the free notation, often includes copyrighted tunes.

I'm about to launch a new Cajun and Creole Fiddle series called Fiddle from Scratch, which includes tablature and notation, along with breakdowns. You can get a stripped-down version here: https://mitchreedmusiclessons.com/downloads/, and if you want the tabs that go along with it you can click here and I'll keep you posted on the release date.
