Flying Solo Cello, book 1, by Myanna Harvey
Discover your inner fiddler! Liven up your cello practice, bring joy to those around you, and captivate your audience with these enchanting fantasias on folk and fiddle tunes. From toe-tappingly energetic to exquisitely beautiful, these unaccompanied cello solos weave melodies with lyrical supporting notes that enhance and imply harmony.
This book is not intended to be a collection of straight fiddle tunes, of which there are many. Instead, these arrangements creatively embellish the notes of the folk and fiddle tunes so that you can create a beautiful sound for a background gig or audience.
These cello solo fiddle solos are in first through fourth position, have no tenor clef, and are set at an early-intermediate level. Since many of the solos only use first and fourth position, these are great position pieces for the cello.
