Customer Comments:

I have just purchased your Old Time Fiddling Book 2.  I have the Old Time Fiddling Book 1 and is by far the best "self-teaching" book I have. (my dog doesn't run away anymore). Thanks for a excellent product." B.B.

"Received my book two today with thanks, am looking forward to starting to play the songs, a lot of the songs you teach I grew up with hearing every day, my dad played fiddle for dances in the 40's & 50's and later after retiring to BC from Saskatoon Sask played his favorites daily , I was a kid then and chorded to him on the piano , I really enjoy learning how to play brings me so much closer to my father's memories, I'm sure he would be proud of what I have learned, ( all to your clever way of teaching). Thanks again." S.G.

Just to let you know I received the second book and I am well pleased with it. This is a very good way to learn old time fiddle and with the cd being recorded at a slow tempo it has made working out the tunes on the banjo in clawhammer style much easier also. Thanks for the work you put into this you have done a fine job!" W.S.
