Updated ABCTuneSearch.com (finally!)
A number of you have been bugging me about the fact that the original version of my site had the results in Adobe Flash, which has basically been gone from most people’s computers for a while, and hits its official end of life next month.
So I finally got around to rewriting it so it doesn’t require the Flash Player. I have a lot of features planned for it in the coming months, but I thought I would put it out there that it’s usable again!
For those of you that haven’t used it before, it can be a handy tool. You can simply jot down the ABC of a few bars of a tune you know, and plug that into the search, along with what kind of tune it is and it will search several tune archives with a "smart search" which works much better than a standard text search… You can also search by name or partial name, which can be handy if you don’t know how to spell something in Irish… 😉
I have some additions coming soon, including an upgraded "contour search", which will search in any key. This is going to be more accurate than the old site for the contour search, but it’s not ready just yet.
Anyway, hope you find it useful!
