King’s Lament–Solo & Duet Fiddle Transcriptions Book




This 76-page book of sheet music includes detailed transcriptions, playing notes, bowing instruction, original artwork and photographs. All of the fiddle solos and duets from David Bragger & Susan Platz’s critically-acclaimed CD have been carefully transcribed by Jeff Hollingsworth.

Jeff ’s transcriptions and comprehensive playing notes cover essential tactics such as cross tuning, old-time bowing and accenting, and duet arranging, so you and your duet partners can sound like David and Susan’s recording. And learning the many key features of old-time fiddling illustrated by these tunes will help you enlarge your own fiddling toolkit so you can create your own great arrangements.

“There’s twin fiddling, and then there’s David Bragger and Susan Platz. Their music really reaches into that space where two instruments become one and draws you right in with it. King’s Lament is one of the most sonorous and rhythmically locked-in sets of tunes you’ll hear, and spans across familiar and unfamiliar old-time terrain. Another really great recording from David’s unique Tiki Parlour collection.” –-Bruce Molsky
