tunebook 130 tunes.

I’m often jamming on my baritone uke, and I sometimes get the whistles out for airs (in complete privacy…).
I really enjoy transcribing tunes. I use Audacity to slow tracks down if required, and MuseScore for notation (both are free). Any ABCs I want to submit are easily written up once I’ve got the sheet music.
I’m happy to help out with tunes anyone might need ABCs for.

Some helpful resources:

The Reverend’s ABC Tune Search - If it’s not here, I start to despair:

ABC Tune Search - A quick fix, but no contour search:

Steve Mansfield’s ABC Tutorial - Very helpful couple of pages:

Here’s a list of tunes I’ve transcribed but haven’t added here yet. Let me know if you’d like to see any of them.
