Hi all, just came across this comprehensive resource.
If you google " Tom Buchanen's Scottish Tome" and look under "This Old Tractor", there is a list of 1100 tunes- mainly Scottish and Irish which can be downloaded in pdf or abc.

Hi Pipemajor,
I don't suppose you've come across Good Time Polka? ( demonstrated by GeorgeH recently )
Not included in the above pack of tunes unfortunately, as I checked via the alphabetical index -- superb source nevertheless! Thanks.

Hi Wirral,

You can find a version at the Concertina Club, although hand written, it might help you get going. Hope this helps..


Omg, while looking for this Good Times, I stumbled onto the "Guido Polka," who would have thought it? I gotta try this one. How politically incorrect is that? Although I'm sure it was probably wriiten for or by someone like Guido Deiro, being of the guido persuasion myself, I just gotta love it!

Thanks Tom but I don't think this is the one George played on "I did that". It was Good Time Polka, not Good Times Polka.

Sorry Wirral, somehow I missed your query, no I've never come across it, I also searched but couldn't find it, apart from Tom's version.
