# My Compositions

Here you'll find music that I've composed. These are generally folk tunes and are provided in abc format. PDFs available upon request, I will gradually add the sheet music to the tunes here. I have recorded some of the tunes and you can find them on SoundCloud. Some of them are bad MIDI files but I am intending to re-record those and record the rest of them in time.

You can filter these tunes using the "select tag" option.

Any of my tunes can be used for non-profit use, the notation but PLEASE always give credit.

*Part of a set inspired by the band's favourite hot beverages at the time. This is for P, who generally likes his tea "warm and wet". This has been tested by giving him coffee and custard mixed together to the approximate shade of brown that looks like tea. He drank it very happily only pausing to note it didn't quite taste right when there was a lot of giggling going on. This has happened twice, the last time being on his wedding day!*
