This is quickly becoming a resevoir of tunes instead of recordings. With that in mind, if you are looking for sheet music, look under the smallpipes section. Tunes are listed Alphabetically (the word 'the' is not included at the beginning of any tune name) (and) (in a set, the name of the first tune is used to categorize the whole set) under which ever instrument I decided to play the tune(s) on. As far as copyright goes, if you see a tune of which you own the copyright and don't want it distributed let me know and I'll remove it. If you don't mind it being distributed but I didn't cite you as the composer, it is probably because I don't know you wrote it, so send me an email and I'll fix it. Check out Barfly, the software by Phil Taylor I use to score the music!

Tunes in orange were written by me, Patrick McLaurin! Tunes in green are Irish (I think). Tunes associated with the USA are red. Christmas tunes are in red and green and do not include grace notes, they are for you to personalize. The rest, that remain in black are probably Scottish.


Smallpipes - If you want to play along but my chanter isn't in tune with yours, check out Audacity, which allows you to change the pitch of the audio without changing the speed. It isn't perfect, but hey, it's FREE!

Calista and Clark's Playtime - Sheet Music - Hornpipe for Calista and her cousin Clark. Edit: Well, the dangers of knowing lots of tunes and being able to sight read at tempo has reared its ugly head. I just about stole the whole first part of this tune from a tune called "Moving Cloud", unknowingly of course. I always thought this tune came too easily. Second part is all mine though, I think. The original composer is apparently Neillidh Boyle. 11-1-2010

If you would like to make a SPECIFIC REQUEST for me to provide sheet music to a traditional tune (not copyrighted), let me know using the form below. My wife is a pediatric resident, I'm working on my dissertation, and we've got two kids, so I probably will just send you an email with the search results from the Bob Pekaar Tune Encyclopedia which will tell you what book(s) you can find the tune in.

DO NOT request sheet music that is copyrighted! If the composer is alive, I will not distribute their music, even if I have it!

If you are looking for a COPYRIGHTED tune and don't want to buy a big music book for just one tune, check out Jim McGillivray's PipeTunes! The contents of which are periodically added to the Bob Pekaar Tune Encyclopedia which will tell you what book(s) you can find the tune in. Jim's site is great with sheet music and recordings of many popular classic and modern tunes that you can buy for a couple of bucks each.
