1 Nov 2019: The Legacy Jig

My friend Jon Antonsson noted that I didn't have The Legacy Jig in my collection. I've known that tune for more than 20 years and played it innumerable times. I just forgot to transcribe it; I usually transcribe tunes as I learn them, but I missed this one. But now my collection is updated and contains The Legacy Jig, and 13 other new tunes.
That's your November update from me!

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.
