Frequently Asked Questions

What do I get when I purchase a tune or a group arrangement?

The solo tunes on this website include the sheet music (with chord suggestions for accompanying instruments), a slow recording of the melody played on fiddle with accompaniment, a fast recording of the melody played on fiddle with accompaniment, and a fast recording of accompaniment only. This lets you play along with the teaching tracks while you learn the tune and increase your speed, and then play along with your own back-up band! Every solo tune is played through twice, so you can also practice getting back into the beginning of the tune.
The ensemble arrangements include the following: sheet music for each individual part; a full score; chords for accompanying instruments; individual recordings of each part; and a recording of the complete arrangement. The ensemble arrangement recordings are at suggested performance speed.

The e-books include sheet music only (with suggested chords). They do not include recordings.

What are the contents of my digital downloads, and how do I open the files?

When you download one of our files, you will receive a compressed or "zipped" file (filename.zip) . Your file will be downloaded to the default location for such files on your computer. Inside that file will be music notation (pdf) and audio files (mp3).

To unzip a file, simply double click on the downloaded file folder and the contents will automatically be extracted. Clicking on each file will automatically open the file using applicable software found on your computer.

Do I have to create an account to purchase something?
