I have been chasing sheet music. As I have been playing with a hammered dulcimer group once a month, I am always looking for stuff on their playlist. I have found title after intriguing title here:
(to play well with others, I have to learn to love the sharp keys).
I haven't seen anything quite as comprehensive for bowed psaltery. but my goodness there are a lot of music sites that can distract me for hours!!
For some more places to find sheet music:
If anyone is in Arkansas, this second site seems to be a group of Celtic music players in Arkansas who get together.
And Bowed Psaltery players remember, music doesn't have to be "for Bowed Psaltery" per se. Any treble instrument music pretty much will do.
www.8note.com is also a good site to search for music. When there, I usually click on violin for the instrument.
Lovely, Brenda. Thanks!!
Donna, thank you for host of new sources for music. Gretchen
I just stumbled upon another source for tunes.
In it, you can search by tune title, or it lets you enter notes on a staff to search for a tune.
Also, you can browse tunes by style, jig, hornpipe etc, and it gives you a list of titles with the first few bars of music of the tune. And when you choose a tune it then shows you the whole tune and a button to hear it.
This is a fun site to browse.
It also, gives ABC notation of each song... which led me to another site,
abcnotation.com which has "Traditional music and medieval & renaissance up to the present day" and, oh, you can browse this one with the "hear it" button right there in the list of tune names. OK, I'm going to go get lost in this web site for a while.... bye...
