Charlie Gore online (Scottish Fiddle Index now Scottish Music Index)

From printed Scottish Fiddle Music Index

... To online Scottish Music Index

Charlie Gore published his Scottish Fiddle Music Index in 1994. The Whittaker Library has a copy of this invaluable resource in its reference section, here at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.  (Details here.)

You can find Scottish fiddle tunes, indexed by "intervals-going-up-and-down", and the book will tell you where to find the tune in hundreds of old fiddle books.  It was truly a labour of love, and worth every minute to people working with this repertoire.

Now, it's online.  (There should be a cyber drumroll and/or a fanfare to announce this.  It really is that important.)

The online version - note the new title!
