I just posted this as an answer to a different thread but I realized that it can be of very general interest so I wanted to re-post it in a dedicate and more appropriate place. Sorry for the double post.

Here's the site I discovered some month ago:

www.folktunefinder.com

You can search for a tune into a huge database of ABC sources and they are converted into sheet music and MIDIS instantly.
If you register an account (that's completely free as in this board) you can post your own blog entries where the ABC notation is automagically converted into sheet music, and in a way very nice to read. Here's a sample from me myself:

http://folktunefinder.com/user/febs/blog/68/

The MIDI is auto-generated too, and you can play it inline.

You can also search for tunes by note patterns, which I found it to be essential two times. The author of the site is a very nice man and he promised me that he will implement the feature to search by range, so to get instantly a HUGE bunch of tunes that fits the ocarina range!

Ciao

I use http://trillian.mit.edu/~jc/cgi/abc/tunefindJC'c Tunefinder.  I have found it great for name searches.  It is amazing what they do at MIT.

Yes that is very nice too. But I like "folktunefinder" better. They share the same "database" of ABC scores around the world wide web as far as I know but I like folktunefinder's "look and feel" more, especially for what matters the sheet music. It's cleaner (I find JC's tunefind bloated compared) and it is faster too.

JC is a great resource nevertheless indeed!
