Old-Time Favorites for Fiddle and Mandolin

Pacific, Mo. — Mel Bay Publications, Inc. has announced the availability of Old-Time Favorites for Fiddle and Mandolin by Dan Levenson.

The publication includes tunes appropriate and common to festivals and jams or just sitting at home with a friend or two. 62 tunes in all with both basic and advanced standard notation lines with suggested chords as well as a mandolin tablature line.

Students will find some of the tunes to be straightforward while others promise to be genuine finger twisters! The book revisits some of the author's old favorites and some time-tested standards.

An accompanying audio includes each tune on both fiddle and mandolin, with a separate CD for each instrument. There is also a clawhammer banjo companion to this book titled Old-Time Favorites for Clawhammer Banjo, which shares the same basic standard notation line in this volume.

Available as a Book/2-CD set or as an eBook.
