Subject: RE: Tech: how to turn off an 'automatic' tune
The entire O'Neill collection is available free in ABC.

Hetzler's site is weirdly designed. The title keeps covering up the menu bar. It is possible, by random clicking, to get the menu bar to display on top of the title, and once you've done that, clicking on "Old-Time MIDI", "Celtic MIDI", or "Other MIDI" will bring up lists of tune names you can click on. They will then play in a new tab in Firefox. Tunes labelled "LS" have a PDF score attached.

Their MIDI bodhran accompaniment is one of the least useful features ever supplied with web-based music.

Handling ABC is a hell of a lot easier and gives you more control over what the tune will sound like.
