So I thought I'd start a collaborative collection thread. There is a lot of music without copyrights out there. You just have to find it. Post your submissions (as ABC Notation if possible) in a spoiler and I'll make sure to paste it into this post. The reason for wanting ABC is the possibilities it gives over images or PDF. I hope we can gather a great collection together :) To start it off. Here's Arirang and Scarborough fair. Most of you might be familiar with them but hey, it's a start.

When posting ABC you need to disable smilies.

Where did you get "The Lost Elf"? It seems unknown to every source of Irish traditional tunes I know of, either by title or melodic pattern. (Not surprising - Irish culture doesn't have elves). The range is improbable for an Irish tune (should be a fourth higher so it'll work on a whistle). It bears a faint resemblance to "Fiollaigean", a mocking song from the Western Isles of Scotland that I have in my Nine Note Tune Book, so I'm willing to believe it is traditional on stylistic grounds.

BTW it's better to give the tempo for a jig using the length of a dotted crotchet - your tempo would be written that way as

Q:3/8=81

(very slow for a jig). The idea is that you want to use the duration of the primary beat as a unit - you'd set your metronome to 81.

I've drawn a complete blank trying to identify that.

The original poster on that forum must have had a traditional name for it, and decided not to pass it on. Really annoying.

It's very familiar from somewhere.

This is another link Google comes up with: http://abcnotation.com/tunePage?a=membres.multimania.fr/corneymusers/dl/ABCTUNES.zip/LOSTELF.ABC/0000
Does that help?

Thanks for posting Arirang. I've always wanted to play it but was too busy to look for the music. The Irish jig looks interesting but I have trouble determining time for tricky rhythms like 6/8.

I'd have to hear someone playing it to know how it goes. Does anybody have a link to this being played? I tried looking for The Lost Elf on You Tube but it only directs me to a videogame called Mabinogi.

I can recommend EasyABC from Nils Liberg. It's available for PC and Mac. One of the programs features is playback of ABC. It can also import both MIDI and MusicXML ;)

OK, the folks on TheSession came up with the older history behind "The Lost Elf". It's usually called "The Reverend Brother's Jig".

Very interesting! Especially all those different names for one tune :)

If you have any questions regarding ABC notation, please post it as a reply in that thread. I'll be happy to answer them to the best of my ability.


I love this idea of a "Collective Collection", I'll contribute with something soon. :D

Cold blows the wind to my true love,
And gently drops the rain.
I've never had but one true love,
And in green-wood he lies slain.

I'll do as much for my true love,
As any young girl may,
I'll sit and mourn all on his grave,
For twelve months and a day.

And when twelve months and a day was passed,
The ghost did rise and speak,
"Why sittest thou all on my grave
And will no let me sleep?"

"Go fetch me water from the desert,
And blood from out the stone,
Go fetch me milk from a fair maid's breast
That young man never has known."

"My breast is cold as clay,
My breath is earthly strong,
And if you kiss my cold clay lips,
You days they won't be long."

"How oft on yonder grave, sweetheart,
Where we were want to walk,
The fairest flower that e'er I saw
Has withered to a stalk."

"When will we meet again, sweetheart,
When will we meet again?"
"When the autumn leaves that fall from the trees
Are green and spring up again."
