BackUp Trax: Old Time & Fiddle Tunes

BackUP Trax: Old Time & Fiddle Tunes, Vol. I by Dix Bruce. Learn melodies and practice soloing on fourteen of the most popular old time & fiddle tunes. Play along with a great string band rhythm section: guitar (Dix Bruce), mandolin (Bob Alekno), string bass (Markie Sanders) and fiddle (Jeremy Cohen).

BackUP Trax: Old Time & Fiddle Tunes is great for ANY stringed instrument, not just fiddle! You play all the leads while the band backs you up. Beginners can practice basic skills while more advanced players can hone their improvisation chops, each at their own individual learning pace. And, it's great fun! You'll really get the feeling of having your own band to practice with.

Melodies are first presented on the recording at a slow speed with just guitar, then each is repeated at regular speed with the band. Split track mixing on the recording allows the student to hear just the melody (while reading along in the book) or just the rhythm section, or both for maximum flexibility and specific study. Finally the band plays several choruses and you play all the leads. Songs may be repeated, at slow or regular speed, as many times as you wish in order to perfect phrases, melodies and solos in a band context. Potential for improvement is unlimited!

Tunes: Temperance Reel, Sally Goodin, Blackberry Blossom, Over the Waves, Beaumont Rag, Red Haired Boy, June Apple, Salty Dog, The Wayfaring Stranger, Arkansas Traveler, Soldier's Joy, Billy in the Lowground and Old Joe Clark.

Two editions available: Guitar/Banjo and Fiddle/Mandolin. Both books have melodies in standard notation, Guitar/Banjo includes guitar and banjo tablature, Fiddle/Mandolin has fiddle music and mandolin tablature. (Please specify when ordering!) We'll jam all night long! Let's get Pickin'!
