    1. I draw these on Appleworks, a software program that is almost outdated. I’ve lately been getting into EZDraw to do the charts. Maybe it’s time to take another look at Tabledit.

  1. Missing something important: Soldier’s Joy. Number one old timey tune of all time! 🙂

    Anyway, thanks for all these tabs, they are a huge help.

    1. Of course Soldier’s Joy is a great tune. I have a beginner’s version in 43 Fiddle Tunes. I could put a more advanced version up that would be like the one in Beginning Old Time Fiddle.

  2. I would like to see Silent Night and The Old Rugged Cross, is there anywhere I can purchase your package in Canada The DVD and the book
    thank s

  3. Hi Great website. I started learning fiddle last November. I would love to learn how to play background fiddle in a jam with other musicians. My friends play guitar and do a lot of Dylan songs. Do you know where I could get fiddle music or tabs specifically for his Desire album that featured violist Scarlet Rivera?

  4. Hi Elan, Great website! I am subscribed to your youtube page and have the 43 fiddle tunes, plus Orange Blossom Special. Can’t think of any tune to have you tab, but will check back often to see whats been added. Keep up the good work!

    1. That is a good tune when played with guitar back-up. I don’t feel it works well as a solo because the melody repeats a figure as the harmony changes. Without hearing the harmony change it looses a little bit.

    1. I’ve never learned to read sheet music, I use the tablature, I find the sheet music to the song I’d like to learn and I have a little chart that tells me what note it is so I can just translate it. (Hope that makes sense!)

    1. These tabs are specifically for fiddle and violin. I don’t have guitar or mandolin tabs. If you are a savvy mandolin player you can use them on the mandolin. You only need to keep in mind the numbers refer to fingers, no frets.
