With respect to the use of double stops, the arrangements in American Melodies, Volume II are significantly more challenging than those pieces found in Volume I. Volume II is geared for students studying either Suzuki book six or pieces such as J. C. Bach or Handel Concerti. There are lots of spiccato passages involving double stops, and lots of passages in higher positions. Be ready to dig in your heels and practice HARD!! These arrangements are for “hot-shot” players that are way-serious about double stops, wanting to take their technique to the next level!!
