  • Re: ABC notation reader for Ubuntu (Linux)

    I am still looking for ANYBODY to step up and say that he or she actually successfully installed EasyABC in Ubuntu. I have Musescore, and use it, but I don't want to import ABC files, I want to interactively edit ABC files in Linux the way I used to do on... more…

  • Re: Helen Robertson

    You will find this on YouTube by searching for Helen N Robertson, otherwise, you will get a lot of artists named Robertson or versions of "Mrs. Robinson," which is a fine Simon and Garfunkle tune but not what you are looking for! more…

  • Re: The Dawning Of The Day / Raglan Road

    I poked around on YouTube and listened to a lot of recordings of Raglan Road - Dubliners, Chieftans, Van Morrison, Sinead O'Connor and the one that seems to be the definitive one, Luke Kelly. None of the tune settings above seems to even come close to th... more…

  • Re: Loch Rannoch

  • Re: A Puppet Waltz

    So, this starts and resolves on A. Why is the key D? If you were going to put chords to it, what would the chord progression be? Thanks! more…

  • Ashokan Farewell

    As noted, Ashokan is a place, not somebody's name. It is a music camp in upstate New York. Jay Ungar composed and named it, so it IS "Ashokan Farewell," not some variant of that like "Ashokan's Farewell." Jay has graciously allowed the tune to be post... more…

  • Re: One Americans view of a trad session

    Hey! Spank the Yank? I resemble that remark! Really, I am an Irish American who has never been to Ireland, and I can hardly wait! I download tons of tunes (not "songs") here and enjoy the heck out of trying to play them! more…
