Wanted: Hymn arrangements for fiddle
« on: Mar 08, 2005, 08:10:05 PM »
Anyone know of any good arrangements of hymns for fiddle?  I'd like to study some other people's arrangements before trying to write my own.   I'm particularly interested in adding drones and double stops.

Thanks for any info you can provide!

I like Nickel Creek's version of Amazing Grace. Jay Buckey has a nice version of nearer My God to Thee with drones. I believe it's still posted on one of his websites.

Speaking of Dale...I love his arrangement of what a Friend We Have in Jesus. I'd love to hear your arrangement of Nearer My God to Thee, Dale!

Thanks Kathy.  The Jay Buckey site is cool.  I downloaded Nearer, and Old Time Religion.   I like the simple arranging style - it's perfect for my level of playing at this point!

Here's the link if anyone else is interested:
