A source of traditional fiddle tunes as well as original tunes
This page features traditional tunes that have come across my path.:) Some are very common and well-known tunes, and others are rather obscure tunes that have been rewarding to find and learn!

***All tunes here are, to the best of my knowledge, traditional and in the public domain. If you discover a tune listed that has a composer, please contact me so that I can correct it. Thank you!*** Please click on link to view a printable sheet music in PDF format. You can also save the PDF to your computer for use on any device that can read PDF files - iPad, Kindle, etc. :) Sheet music is notation and chords.
Super news!!! I have started building a new website for those who enjoy flatpicking on their guitar! As with www.tradandnewfolkmusic.com, there are PDF's available for free download which contain not only the notation and chords, but guitar TAB! Check it out - www.pickthestrings.com i
