Review: Before I start with my review of this book let me first disclose that I had the good fortune of knowing Dick Fegy as a teacher, a band mate, and most importantly, as a great friend... He is hands down the best musician that I have ever known. So, about this book... it's great if you're willing to do some homework. Like maybe check out Fegy's work on a variety of David Bromberg's recordings. He was all about TONE ! This is a collection of eclectic fiddle tunes that are more about finesse than they are about flash. It's a solid investment for any serious student of the guitar. – John O'Kennedy/Amazon Customer Review
