Cliff, someone mentioned that it would be nice to have these in the key of D since most Irish songs are written in that key.  I'm wondering if it would be possible to put the entire book online so it could be copied and pasted into something like WEB.TRANSPOSE.TOOL.  It would only be accessible to people that have bought the book, perhaps we could write in and get a password or something. Would you run this by Karl?  I'm getting both a Tennessee Music Box (played like a box dulcimer) and a tenor D flute in a few days and I sure would like to have this music for them.  For the flute, I have nothing in the key of D and will just have to make up stuff to entertain myself, which won't last very long as I have a very limited imagination!  Please check.  Thanks so much.

Why not transpose the tunes yourself? Just type them in from the book in ABC format then use one of the many available utilities to convert them into any key you wish. You'll probably not want to do all 300+ at once, but one or two a day will only take a few minutes. Alternatively, there are thousands of ABC files readily available on-line.

Hi Leslie,

Thanks for the request. I can see how that could be helpful. At present we don't have the book in a form that is ready to post on the web. As kypfer mentioned there are a lot of folksongs currently available from ABC sites which are ready to paste into online transposition tools. My guess would be that you could get an ABC version of just about all the songs in the 300 Celtic book from the ABC sites. That being said we will keep this in mind for the future. We would like to eventually offer additions to just the printed book.

Nice book, nice work to arrange that music for an instrument with less extension as for example a whistle or a fiddle or accordeon. Not easy to do.

Ideas for the next edition: ornamentation (as cuts and taps and rolls) in a short instruction, accord symbols that are easy but as authentic as possible, bigger scores, short information text about the tune, information about the tempo.

It is a very good idea to let the player try the melody in other keys. Eventually write down the beginning to make it easier.

Hope that helps.

In the intro, Karl says that he had been planning a Celtic ornamentation curriculum and I for one, would love to have such a tutorial - even if it starts as a few downloadable pieces.  What's the status of that curriculum?

Edit: and if Karl doesn't have the time for a full book, how about something akin to Grey Larsen's "Tune Vault" (for Irish whistle) - he sells (downloadable) packages consisting of a recording, a sheet of comments and a transcription of the recording. I would definitely buy transcriptions of any of the samples on the "sound samples" page.

The book is a fantastic addition. My appreciation for it (and all the work that went into its creation) grows more and more.
