Traditional Celtic, 
Old Time & Bluegrass
Tune Book
Popular fiddle tunes and slow airs  for Irish or old time sessions and bluegrass jams, usually with chords.

Here is a collection of approximately 700 favorite traditional Irish, Scottish, and American fiddle tunes, harp pieces and bagpipe marches in standard notation, usually with guitar chords and sometimes with tab. Many of these are core repertoire tunes played at Irish sessions, contra dances and bluegrass and old-time jams. Others are lesser known tunes that I have included for their musical merit.
       I have gathered these tunes from both online and printed sources, and in multiple versions whenever possible so that you might compare the variants. To please your eyes as well as your ears, I've illustrated these pages with photos, engravings, and paintings.
       I have also arranged many of these melodies for s
olo fingerstyle guitar in four books (see the list of tunes), and 100 tunes for diatonic harmonica, also available in a book, Irish and American Fiddle Tunes for Harmonica.  Some of these tunes can be heard on my fingerstyle Celtic guitar CD. Be sure to check out my pages of links to other online tune books and also links to tools for traditional musicians.
