Gypsy Violin Book

Postby saxappeal » Thu Jul 17, 2003 10:06 pm

As well as having a son very passionate about Gypsy Guitar, my daughter is very passionate about gypsy violin. Only problem is, he gets a massive amount of support from guitarists and plenty of books. However, my daughter is getting frustrated not having the access to the right books. :cry:

Can anyone point me in the right direction, where to find Gypsy Violinist books. :?: :?: :?:

I know I've seen one (at least) in the local shop; I'll track down the ISBN, etc., and get back to you. I wonder, too, if they can't share some things-that is, can some of the guitar stuff carry over to violin? Maybe not playing identical solos, but learning arpeggios, diminished scales, that sort of thing, with an eye towards improvising?

That's lucky gal, my husband would rather watch paint dry. He only suffers samois because its such a beautiful location. Enjoys the first few days of Sweet Georgia Brown, after the 10th time the novelty has worn off :shock:

Still thanks for the suggestions!

I tried to buy a book called Gypsy Jazz - Violin Songbook Sheet Music last winter from the Piano Spot (pianospot.com) . They were temporarily out of stock, they should have them in by now. The email is zshops@pianospot.com

Sounded like a good book at the time.

You know, as soon as I entered that last post, I could hear my mom's voice in my ear...she always had a favorite riddle:

"A father and son are out driving when they have a terrible accident. The father dies immediately, but the son survives, and is taken to the hospital for emergency surgery. They wheel him into the OR, where the surgeon takes one look at him and says 'I can't operate on this boy-he's my son!'"
How can you explain it?
Strangely, she never caught me with it when I was a kid, yet here I am...
Lucky gal it is, then, and lucky kids to boot.

I have to say with complete honesty, I had that same riddle told to me last year and I am ashamed to say I never new the answer either. :oops: Could of kicked myself when I found out.

Anyway, the site is ideal. There are plenty of books to be going on with :D

I've recently placed some jazz violin tuition books on www.ebay.co.uk - including the Matt Glaser Sefan Grappelli book.

:D The grappelli books are very good. Also find this book: GYPSY VIOLIN BY MARY ANN HARBAR. published by mel bay. ISBN: 0-7866-0843-9. You can get a c.d with it aswell. The book is the Traditional gypsy tunes from Russia, Romania and Hungary. (Dark eyes, Two Guitars, Kalinka all incuded!)
Nice tunes to throw in aswell as playing the Manouche jazz.
