well, I guess this is good for Ukes, too, but I think it's more interesting if you're also into tin whistles, bagpipes, violins or other melody instruments:

the page is called thesession and is the largest resource of tunes I found so far on the web. it's a very simple to use site, so, enjoy!

www.thesession.org

just don't expect the banter to be as friendly on the forum as this one is! I've been on there for years and there are some grumpy so and sos around!

Makes me sound grumpy too, doesn't it!

Also try Richard Robinson's tune book on http://www.leeds.ac.uk/music/Info/RRTuneBk/listings.html

A fantastic resource for folk music from all over Europe and one of the biggest on-line collections in the world. Lovely man - looks like one of ZZ top! He's a great clarinettist and very clever chap all round really.
