Sheet Music

Sheet music from Phil Passen

I often find it fun to write sheet music for a tune I’ve learned by ear, and then compare my version to other transcriptions of the tune. And if I learn a tune from sheet music, I always listen to a recorded version to hear what it should sound like. Here is sheet music I’ve created for a few of the tunes I especially enjoy playing. You can also listen to an MP3 file for each tune using the corresponding controller. If you are on a dial-up connection, it may take a while for the song files to load. The load status indicator on each controller will show you how much of each file has loaded.

These are home recordings; I’m playing the melody on the dulcimer, unaccompanied, so you can hear what the tune sounds like. Periodically I will change the tunes available here, so check back every now and then. I hope you enjoy learning and playing these melodies!
