Mark Wardenburg plays bluegrass and old time fiddle.Fiddle
Mark Wardenburg has provided this big pile of old time fiddle notation. Mark says that they are quick transcriptions from the noted recordings and that all of the subtleties of timing and the variations are up to you.

Since he and I play together you will find that a lot of this sheet music has an equivalent banjo tab. He also includes the chords so these may be equally useful for the old time mandolin, guitar and bass players.

You can leave comments on the Guest Book or contact Mark directly at mark@taterjoes.com.

Band In A Box files are now availablewith back-up for a number of the tunes. Go to the Sound Files Page.

How It Works
New additions and updates will be added here in chronological order so the few people that check back regularly will have less trouble finding the new stuff. I'll keep a rolling list from the last month or so. A warning is in order! The newer tunes are more likely to be corrected or otherwise revised. Check back and let us know about any problems.

Chord Charts
Chord charts for many of the tunes. Yes, we know that there isn't always agreement on what the "correct" chords are. Here are the ones we use and should match the fiddle and banjo double stops in the transcriptions and tabs.

NEW FEATURE
MIDI generated sound files

We now have mp3 files of the melody (fiddle part) for most of the tunes. Check it out and let us know what you think.

P.S. Mark doesn't always look this sad.
