This site is authorized by Ron Clarke to host and use all of his midi files
... was sequenced by Ron Clarke. He is a folk musician from Australia with lots of playing experiance. I am Henry from Germany. One day we decided to put our things together to join and setup our common www-project. When ever you will find a term like 'My Tunes' - you will receive Ron's midi files in my layout.
My expectation of a tunebook is to offer musical notation, sounds and lyrics in one environment. I will use all recources of the www and combine links to sounds, musical notation and lyrics in this location. I have surfed a lot of fine homepages and I know how many hours authors have spend to built their contents. It is not my idea to blame their great work - my job is to create a working environment to all the brilliant stuff that I have found. I will not double webspace - I only try to find a way of fair linking.
Go on now - play lots of Ron's folk tunes online with your MIDI player, download the zipped archives to play and learn them offline, find musical notation and choose background music to play in random order while surfing anywhere ...
To find a tune, please use Google's search engine. Type in a single keyword, copy it into the clipboard and follow the resulting pages. Have in mind that you search for a *.mid file, so it is only possible to show you the *.html file that contains your keyword. Start now a second search in the browsers window and copy the contents of the clipboard into the browsers search the document menu. This 2. pass search will lead you to the midi file. Try the links to get what you want. I try to make it work.
Very special features
Another way to get the midi files is to use a spreadsheet. Here is my special tip:
Do you have installed Lotus 1-2-3 ? Try to use the spreadsheet as a search index. It works with my Win95 system and MSIE 5.0. Load down the spreadsheet to your computer. Open it again with your Lotus 1-2-3 program from your disk-location. Sort and reorganise the index file on your disk as you like it - but you must be online to get the midi files from this server.
If you have another product installed, load the spreadsheet down to your computer and convert it into your format. You must be online to get the midi sounds and the viewer must have been installed properly. Open the converted file with your program from your disk-location. Maybe it works - but I cannot prove it.
At this state I am not sure that all features will work with any browser, please be patient.
