Abc tunes from the woodenflute mailing list
The woodenflute mailing list exists to discuss all aspects of the wooden flute - music, history, technique, players, making, workshops, festivals, new CDs, and gossip.
In the course of discussions, tunes are often posted to the list in abc format. These tunes are posted to illustrate a point, to answer a query, or just as one wooden flute player sharing a good tune with the members of the list.
I have made an honest attempt to credit all individual abc notations to the correct transcriber, and to observe any copyright issues relating to tunes in the file : I will happily correct any errors if you email me. Updates to the file will be posted approximately every three months, depending on the number of tunes contributed to the list and my getting a round two wit.
I have manually tidied abc notation where necessary to generate a readable
abc file, but without (intentionally) altering the actual transcription except
in correcting certain glaringly obvious errors or ommissions. The abc has been
tested and found OK against my copies of abcm2ps
and Abc2Win, your mileage
may vary. See my abc tutorial at http://www.lesession.co.uk.
