I'm looking for Celtic music online. Not to listen to, so much as to play.

I just heard the Mary L. McKay by Schooner Fare on the radio, and decided that I had to learn that song. So very much like New Scotland folk it just drew me in. But it seems there aren't many places online that offer Chord-pro sheet music for Celtic music, and I was wondering where, if at all, you find your music online.

Try Mudcat Cafe. I'm not for certain if they have sheet music, but I do know that they have lyrics to thousands of Irish, Scottish, Celtic folk music and have MIDI files for many of them. (They also have great discussions on the meaning of many of these songs).

Thanks Cailiosa. I'll give it a go.

I would also try http://www.contemplator.com/
This has a large amount of stuff! Every song has a midi, ao you can hear the melody and bass lines. I have used this site many times.They also give a little information about the song as well...

I hope that helps

Cheers

I've heard it said that Celtic music cannot be truly represented on paper, and that if you really want to learn to play it, one should learn my ear.... I know that I have been doing well to find anything in sheet music for it as well... Not that I'm in any major hurry atm. Got to learn to play some of what I have alreay before I worry much about anything else.

I like this site quite a bit...
http://www.thesession.org/

Lots of great sheet music (in multiple formats too!) and a forum much like this one.
Oh, and they list recordings where you can find said tunes.

BTW, I'd agree with Aaediwen on this one.
It's not that Celtic music can't be expressed on paper, it's just difficult to capture every little bit of nuance without writing it out in an impossible manner.
Starting as a classical musician, I tried to read everything and got really fed up whenever I tried to make the piece musical. A couple of years ago, I started pulling CD's off of the shelf and learning the slower tracks by ear. I've eventually been able to "hear" faster and faster tracks with better success.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

PS....I should probably mention that I've been known to pull down my O'neill's collection and look up a tune when I have problems with a section. wink.gif

you might try HTTP://www.tabcrawler.com guitar and bass guitar tabs, it's mostly rock music, modern and classic, but i have a more than once surprised myself when searching the site for folk and celtic music and not just finding a submission of the song i'd in mind, but sometimes from the artist that brought the song to my attention.
