Welcome to my page of original tunes for contradancing! I've posted a sampling of my tunes for public consumption, and will add more over time. All of these tunes were composed on a chromatic hammered dulcimer, but should lie well on most instruments. The chords are provided (on the gif's), but I'd certainly love to receive suggestions for alternative chords as the tunes get played by others. The tunes are posted both in abc format and as ".gif" images. The abc tunes were set using Jim Vint's ABCWin2 v2.1 shareware. To compile, listen to, and print the abc format tunes you must have the appropriate abc software: OK! take me to the zzounds.com abc website! The sheet music (gif) was set in Finale(tm) and offers more complete notation of each tune, including guitar chords. The .gif images can be printed directly from your browser window: File:Print, and are sized to fit nicely on one page - very readable for us +40-somethings with bum eyes!

I hope you enjoy the tunes and use them, and any comments you might have will be most appreciated. Thanks for stopping by, and see you at the dance!

Greg
