Tune list

This list consists of tunes at least one of us is confident leading and most of us have followed along with before.

For the Irish traditional tunes (and several non-traditional, non-Irish tunes), TheSession.org is a good resource for ABC notation, as well as MIDI files and staff notation.

Not sure how to remember the rhythms of different time signatures? Try this discussion.

For everyone’s convenience, we have MuseScore files for the songs we’re working on as a group available on a shared (read only) Google DriveFeel free to download and edit those files for your own use.

MuseScore is a free, open-source score editing application for desktop. There are also two mobile apps:

  • MuseScore (Android only, free):allows you to browse and display music on MuseScore.com
  • MuseScore Songbook (Android and iPhone, paid): allows you to display and play back your own locally saved MuseScore files

Guitarists and players of other stringed instrument players may appreciate TuxGuitar (free, open source). This program allows you to create tabs for stringed instruments with different tunings, numbers of strings, and numbers of frets.
