19 Oct 2017: Browse Jigs and Reels by Key

Now you can browse jigs and reels (which are so many that the incipit indexes are split by key) not only by first letter of key, but also by the whole key.
E.g. you can list all reels in the key of G dorian.

21 May 2017: Set Scale and Width for Sheet Music

I've now made it possible to change the scale and width when displaying sheet music for tunes, so that it fits your screen and your needs. Try it here:
The display page also initially somewhat adapts to the width of your screen. For small screens (e.g. mobile phones) the width and scale are reduced.

19 May 2017: Corrected Random Tune

The "Random tune" feature could sometimes crash and not produce a tune. This is now corrected.

7 May 2017: Corrected Chord Display

I've now corrected the display of chords for tunes, so that chords containing sharp or flat signs are displayed correctly.

Most of the tunes with chords are in the category "other tunes".
