Violinist's Guide to the Five String, arranged by Danieldouglas Smith.
The arrangements in this book are specifically designed to help the experienced violinists adapt their technique to the 5 string violin. It's in sincere wish of the author that this book of arrangements helps make the transition to the 5 string violin, quicker, easier, and more fun. Furthermore, since there is very little music specifically written for the instrument, we hope this publication will inspire other 5 string players to try their hand at writing music for this most interesting violin.
Looking for a 5 String Violin?
For 5 all string players, we highly recommend you to check out the the Fiddlerman 5-String Violin Outfit. This beautiful violin is one of very few well-made 5 string violins that we've seen. This Guarneri style violin projects a very powerful, yet deep sound. It's well balanced and has an even tone throughout the strings. This violin will make justice for any 5-string player.
