I hope this is the right place for this... The other day, while indulging my hobby of plundering 'legacy' ABC files for good new tunes, I came across a whole directory of files which I had no memory of ever downloading. A little searching revealed the source: Tom Buchanan's Scottish Tome That link directs you to a web page which has over 1100 Scottish/Irish tunes in ABC sub-collections (jigs, reels, etc.), and individually in ABC, PDF and page scan formats. There is also a (PDF) document explaining how the project originated (on The Session ) and how it was implemented. Very interesting - if you are a computer nerd like me... It worked for me - first shot out of the box, I found a tune I had been looking for for ~3 months, (and I'm such a dozy git that I hadn't even realised I'd been looking for it...😎) I don't think this collection has been mentioned here before - apologies for the duplication if it has, but it might be worth a look... I think I'll x-post this to melodeon.net...
Hi I was just wondering if anyone has any information about this book… 'Robert Burns' songs for C/G Anglo Concertina 20 Button by Ondrej Sarek'? In particular, is it written in normal notation or tabs… are the pieces easy or difficult, etc.? It sounds nice but it would be great to hear what other members think about it... Cheers, John
