Making a Tune Book for a Friend
I know this question has been asked almost a billion times, but I am making a tune book for a friend’s birthday (June) as she was gifted with a fiddle for christmas from her loving husband.
I have a few questions about choosing tunes to put in said tune book.
As I am a Fluter and not a Fiddler, I have no concept on what is hard and what is easy for a fiddler. I want to order her tune book from easy to hard so I need some help on this.
-What range should I look for when choosing and ranking tunes?What is basic, intermediate, hard for a beginner?
-Are there intervals or note combinations that are difficult that should be included later rather than sooner?
-Are there keys that are easy/difficult for a beginner?
-Finally, I have some tunes I plan to include as they are played around very often, but some tune suggestions and where they rank for her level (This is her first instrument ever) would be fabulous.
