Introduction
This book is a collection of common old time fiddle tunes. These are tunes you
will hear played at many Bluegrass and Old Time music jams. The tunes collected here
in Volume 1 are designed for beginning and intermediate level players. Volume 2 of this
series are more advanced versions.
The tunes are written in standard music notation and mandolin tablature. Each
instrument plays the same notes. This way, both instruments can learn the same version
of the tune and play them easily together.
The standard music notation is on the top staff and the mandolin tablature is on
the bottom staff.

The mandolin tablature (sometimes abbreviated tab) represents the four string
pairs on the mandolin. When you see a number, it means play that string at that fret.
Thus, in the tablature above, the first note is 5 on the D string. That means play the fifth
fret on the D string. If you have any trouble reading standard music notation or mandolin
tablature, I suggest purchasing one of the good instruction books on the market.
Some tunes are very easy, some more difficult. When learning each tune, play
through the music slowly, and fiddlers, closely watch the bow directions!
I would appreciate any comments you may have on this book. Drop me a line at
the address on the next page.
Thank you and good music to all.
