All Star Bluegrass Jam Along ~ Fiddle Soft Cover Book & CD
Featuring Darol Anger

Backups, Lead Parts, and Note-for-Note Transcriptions for 21 Essential Tunes

All Star Bluegrass Jam Along ~ Fiddle Book & CD CoverHere is a fabulous collection for fiddlers of all levels featuring 21 must-know bluegrass songs & instrumentals, created especially for learning players by the world's top bluegrass pickers.

The CD provides the audio versions of the fiddle solos, plus multiple rhythm tracks performed at moderate tempo for easy play-along. The back up band plays chord changes to each tune several times through at a slow to moderate tempo.

The fiddler plays his version of the basic melody, so you can learn it in its most elemental form. The second time he plays it in a slightly more adventurous way, to give you an idea as to where the tune can be taken in an improvised solo. As the band plays its rhythmic accompaniment, he drops out for several choruses, providing solid backup tracks for a fun and productive practice session.

The Book provides you with printed standard notation so you can learn to play intros, endings and both of the solos in note-for-note detail. You won't find a better way to learn important tunes and improve your fiddling technique. Once you have mastered these tunes it will be much easier for you to tackle just about any others that came along.

What They Say About Darol Anger

“Darol Anger is the quintessential improvising violinist.” –Dr. Billy Taylor, CBS Sunday Morning

Darol Anger Bio

Darol Anger Bio PhotoViolinist, fiddler, composer, producer and educator, Darol Anger is at home in a number of musical genres, some of which he helped to invent. With the jazz-oriented Turtle Island String Quartet, Anger developed and popularized new techniques for playing contemporary music styles on string instruments. The virtuosic "Chambergrass" groups Psychograss and Newgrange, and the plugged-in Anger-Marshall Band feature his compositions and arrangements.

His Grammy-nominated folk-jazz group Montreux was the original musical model for the New Adult Contemporary radio format. The David Grisman Quintet forged a new genre of acoustic string band music with Darol’s "fertile inventiveness, surprising touches and technical mastery" (Boston Herald) often in the forefront.

Working with some of the world’s great improvising string musicians, among them Stephane Grappelli, Mark O’Connor, Bela Fleck, Tony Rice, David Grisman and Vassar Clements, has contributed to the development of Anger’s signature voice both as player and composer. His published works include jazz originals and arrangements, a fiddle tune collection, and, of course, recordings. Anger has produced dozens of critically lauded recordings since 1977 which have featured his compositions and performances. Highlights include: the Heritage project, which brings together some of the most important voices in the traditional, contemporary folk and bluegrass music scene; the Anger-Marshall Duo’s Compass Records releases JAM, Brand New Can and The Duo, which set new standards for the Newgrass/jazz genre; Diary Of A Fiddler, which sets Anger in duet with the most prominent and innovative fiddlers of our time; and his latest release, Republic Of Strings, an intergenerational group featuring Anger's compositions and string music from all over the world.

Anger’s work has expanded not only the acoustic violin’s boundaries, but has contributed to the development of violin synthesizer repertoire and technology. His writings on these subjects and string education issues appear regularly in prominent music periodicals and on the Web. His current projects include Darol Anger's Republic Of Strings; The Duo with Mike Marshall; The Fiddlers 4, with Michael Doucet and Bruce Molsky; and the Prairie trio with Pianist Phillip Aaberg and cellist Eugene Freisen.
