    I had no idea O'Neill's is online. Too cool.

    This site is nice for some Irish session stuff, plus they have chords for accompaniment instruments.

    Barbara, I actually like it when you post the ABC for anything being played. I think most of us have conversion programs. Maybe someone could make it a point to post the ABC file when they upload a video, if they have it available. Something you're doing already, but we could probably all help with that.

    Thanks for all the work you're doing on this. I know I haven't posted many videos on here, but I sure am practicing them.

    Don't know if this has come up yet, but this tunefinder at MIT will find just about any tune if it exists anywhere on the web.

    Here's two resources for Band-in-a-Box users. The first is a zip file of 150 fiddle tunes mostly OT and blue grass, the second is hundreds of celtic tunes grouped into zip files of jigs, reels, aires, etc. These are midi which I can't stand, but it only takes me a few seconds to change the tracks to real instruments.

    Thanks Doghearty and Marcelyn for the information. A great source of tunes is Ryan's Mammoth Collection of 1050 pieces. Ihttp://violinsheetmusic.org/collectionst can be found at http://violinsheetmusic.org/collections

    This one was posted elsewhere in the forum awhile back - good source for tunes for learning by ear as it provides slow versions and then a more up to speed version of each tune. Folks could always use it in tandem with thesession.org, looking up the ABC's there if need be - lots of tunes to be found if you go back thru their archives, primarily standard session fare, so might not be someone's cup of tea if they're looking for obscure tunes.
