Bluegrass Boy Gene Lowinger wrote this book in the 1970's, when it was the first of it's kind. It is still a classic; well organized, insightful and well written by someone who knows. I'm surprised how well this book has aged. I have many of the more recent bluegrass fiddle books, including the excellent Stacy Phillips books, but I keep coming back to this one. Should be in the collection of any bluegrass fiddler.

This book presumes that you already play fiddle/violin, hopefully double stops too. Starting from there its full steam ahead. Learning songs, licks and fills. Also turn-arounds and transitions to the next chord/key. Its the best book I've seen- if you can play at this level. Also shows chords, a little. Not a long book, but packed with great instruction. A good book for making the transition from violin to fiddle. Add this one to your fiddle library.
