About the Tunes|
These tunes are available on the web as a free resource. If you like my collection and want to encourage me, you can send a donation through PayPal by clicking the button above to the right.
You can click your way through the indexes or search to find the tunes and display sheet music directly here on the site. If you're only looking for song lyrics, you can go to the lyrics page, where the songs are sorted by title.
I've transcribed them as I have learnt them, which does not necessarily mean that I play them that way nowadays. Many of the tunes include variations and different versions. Some tunes appear more than once, if played in different keys or if the versions differ very much. Related tunes and different versions of the same tune are cross-referenced in the H: field. If there is a source (S:) or discography (D:) included the version transcribed might still not be exactly as that source played the tune, since I might have changed the tune around a bit when I learnt it.
The tunes were learnt from sessions, from friends, or from recordings. When I've included discography, it's often just a reference to some of the recordings the tune appears on.
If you know the names of any of the tunes I haven't got a name for, or if you have some additional information you think might be of interest, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And thanks to all the musicians I've met and played Irish music with over the years, in Ireland, Sweden and other countries.
The ABC files:|
My tunes are labelled with unique id's. If you see another ABC tune site with tunes labelled id:hn-reel, id:hn-jig, id:hn-hornpipe etc, you can be sure they stole the transcriptions from my site!
More information about the ABC format is available at The Official ABC Home Page. There you can also find links to utilities for printing sheet music from ABC files, etc.
For Windows systems, I recommend Abcmus for playing tunes via MIDI and handling tune books.
I can also recommend TunePal for finding ABC tunes.
