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...
