Compendium of Fiddle Styles

This is an open source WikiBook that you can help edit.

It is different than many compendiums in that it is focused on styles in the sense of techniques rather than on styles in the sense of techniques associated with specific regions. Many fiddle styles are associated with specific regions and when that is the case we will acknowledge it. You may also be interested in other Wikibooks on related topics.
