This collection of Cajun tunes is intended as a stepping stone for those who are new to the Cajun tradition. It is almost impossible to adequately capture the spicy flavor of Cajun music in standard music notation, therefore, specific notes and bowings are suggested. The spirit in the music is quite infectious, and quickly you will find your toes tappin’, your fingers flyin’, and your bow dancing. The stereo CD features fiddle and rhythm guitar. The tunes are mixed with rhythm guitar on one side of the stereo, and the fiddle on the other. Once you learn the tune, you can tune out the fiddle with your stereo’s balance control, and play along with the guitarist yourself!
