This book is a mixture of traditional and contemporary tunes from the Scottish accordionists' repertoire. It explores the common tune types played in Scotland, such as the Jig, Reel, Strathspey, Slow Air, Waltz, March and Polka. Some tunes are arranged in a traditional, dance music style, where others have been set with a more contemporary feel. Strong emphasis has been placed on the use of the left hand to enhance the style and arrangement. Includes a history of the accordion in Scotland, and also a CD of performances by Ian Lowthian.
