Having a copy of the book at last is great; but it's not the best scan I've seen, and the print is a little small for my tired old eyes. So now it's in the public domain I'm going to abc the tunes as I go along. I've picked a particularly hard one to start off with but it's so good I just had to have a go!

Please feel free to add your own transcriptions, it will save me some work. :D


I was planning to put them in midi format so that one can listen to them, put the tunes one each in .pdf format and search for the chords...

The abc file will give you both midi and .pdf, just copy and paste the text into the Tune-O-Tron converter then click 'Submit'.

The version above was written so that a midi playback would give a better idea of how it sounds although that is a pretty inaccurate version of the true hornpipe rhythm too. If you want the dots printed as it is in the book use this version of the abc.

ummm,.. those two versions sound exactly the same as midi. (to my tin ear)

When I open either midi file as dots in a midi-to-dot program, they ARE exactly the same. Either will superimpose precisely over the other when printed on tracing paper.

Well the first version should play (and print) as lots of dotted quavers followed by semiquavers. The second version is all quavers and sounds very different. Is it possible you managed paste the same version twice into the converter by mistake? :unsure:

Tried it again, even rebooting between uses of the tune-o-tron.
The written music is obviously different, but the midi is exactly the same. Both midi files open into dots (and sound) exactly as the first version posted. (dotted quaver & semi-quaver, rather than two quavers)

The tune-o-tron has always done this for me. I love it!

Some of the ABC player software will "swing" a tune if you have it specified as a hornpipe with the R:Hornpipe.
try taking this line out and see if it gets played without the dotted rhythmn.

ps from memory, Alastair Anderson plays this one (Joe Burkes almost straight ie undotted
