Hi,
Does anyone know of a tunebook of crooked fiddle-tunes? The only one that I can find is "Airs Tordus - Crooked Tunes" from Liette Remon in French. The french isn't a deal-breaker since the gift-recipient can read music.


Thanks,
Matt

Crooked tunes exclusively? I'd be surprised if there is one. One source you might consider is Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes by Jeff Todd Titon (University Press of Kentucky, 2001). It might be back in print (maybe somebody here knows for sure). I'd sure hope so bec. it's such a good resource, even if you don't read dots much (like me). Lots of crooked tunes in there.

There are copies out there, with and without the CD.

I second the suggestion of Titon's book. Its available new from Amazon, with the CD: amazon.com/Old-Time-Kentucky-F...813122007

"Clinch Mountain Backstep" has had many guitarists tearing their hair out. The guitarists are usually playing rhythm and are more affected by the brief change in timing than the person playing melody.
