Chris Walshaw has just released the March 2010 edition of the tune search on his abc site here this is really slick and returns all the tunes in a list with the start of the musical dots shown and the ability to play each tune from the list. I found it very quick and easy to use but a warning you can spend hours just comparing versions of tune, I was initially looking for Constant Billy, hours of fun.

Terrifying!   I tried to test it with 'egb egb' start notes of our March ToTM. OK that's a common motif in Em - 859 different tunes  ???  And 'egbegb' didn't work. If you're listening Chris - fantastic work as ever. If you could get Regular Expression parsing or similar in there it would be to the good.

Various tune sets in PDF format from the "border Box" band may be found here,

http://www.northumbrian.info/borderbox/index.htm

The site also has a history of the band and a number of photographs.

I would imagine that Theo may well have heard of them.

Cheers

An 'interesting' collection of tunes. ;)
Quite a lot from eastern European countries, Russia and the Middle East; but only 12 English tunes, 2 Scottish and one Welsh tune.
However, presumably by way of compensation, we have quite a smattering of tunes from an 'extended Europe' which includes the USA, South Africa, Venezuela, Mexico and even Taiwan!

Here's a new (at least to me) search engine - you can just "play" the notes on a virtual keyboard - works a treat:

Enjoy!
