  •  Choose a speed and practice playing each song's chords while singing or humming the melody.
  • Pick a song, find a good recording or TAB online, and practice until you can play the melody by heart.


  • Practice adding melodies while you play the chords.
  • Figure out each melody up the neck, in different keys.


  • Purchase 2-3 versions of the song you want to work on (CD, iTunes, etc.), and then use a program like "Amazing Slow Downer" to slow down some melodies/solos you like and create your own version.
  • Improvise on the melodies by throwing in lots of flavor, but work hard on keeping the melody alive!
  • Practice these tunes in random order on "SHUFFLE"!

    Fiddle Tunes Volume 1: (Backing Tracks and TAB/Standard Notation)


  Most of these melodies and backing tracks were played by me at home with my family and dog running about, and each track was played straight through, so I accept all responsibility for any strange noises or mistakes you hear during the recordings!  :-) 

  To make these tunes available at 10 different speeds each, I played each of them once in the key listed and then I used my "Amazing Slow Downer" software to change the speeds of the tracks.
