Scratchy Noises is a ceilidh band with a difference. The group formed in 2010
Our purpose is to let us beginner/improvers practice playing together and have fun.
We do 'gigs' which are very raw as the ethos is if you can play the tune really well you are probably too good for Scratchy Noises.
Our group aims to be inclusive for beginner/improver players of any instrument.

Wellington Slow Session
The Wellington Slow Session website is an opportunity for players who are starting out with Irish traditional music and want an opportunity to play tunes that they're learning or have already learnt with others in a supportive environment. We don't teach tunes directly in this session but it's a great chance to practice playing with others. There's some scope for accompaniment but the focus is on the melody instruments.
A really good site worth exploring as it has a tunebook page with tunes they have collected and produced different options for you to download Print and explore.

Folk tune finder is a melody search engine
If you've got a tune in your head and you can't remember what it is, you can type a few notes into folk tune finder and hopefully get a result. By default your search will match the start of the tune, but if you can only remember then end, you can broaden it out to match anywhere. If you don't know the key it doesn't matter - you can search in any key.
If you know the title of what you're looking for you can type the title in.
Folk tune finder is a collection of ABC tunes
Tunes with lots of different transcriptions are grouped together. Tunes are known by different names in different places. Because they're grouped, you can find alternative titles for tunes. You can also find different versions of the same tune by browsing the list of transcriptions.
