John Hartford was known for his quirky song writing and tap-dancing while he played the banjo, but he also possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of old-time fiddle tunes. Included in this collection are all 22 fiddle tunes from John's Hamilton Ironworks album. Each tune is presented in standard notation and in mandolin tab. Also included are many of John's variations, suggested chords, and information about the origins and insights on how to approach each tune.

This collection of fiddle tunes played by John Hartford is to provide fiddle players with an accurate source so as to incorporate these great tunes into their repertoire. Difficulty ranges from relatively basic fiddling to solos that employ a range of techniques such as slides, alternate tunings and playing on up the fingerboard. This collection is a "must have" for any fan of John Hartford's music and for all old-time musicians.
