tunebook 128 tunes.

I’m often jamming on my baritone uke, and I sometimes get the whistles out for airs.

I really enjoy transcribing tunes. I use Audacity to slow down tunes if required, and MuseScore to notate them (both are free). Any ABCs I might want to add here are easily written up once I’ve got the sheet music.
I’m happy to help out with elusive tunes anyone might need ABCs for.

Some oft-used resources:
Name That Tune - Different names for the same tunes (Irish/Scottish):

The Reverend’s ABC Tune Search - By no means definitive, but 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:
