The gift of Gail

One of our group's members, Gail Perna, is a dulcimer player from Michigan who is running her own group on folkjam. As a 'thank you' for the time Shawn and I have put into the site, she has offered to turn all the tunes for our group into .pdf and .mid files, which is a huge gift. The time I'm not spending doing that conversion myself will go right back into site development time, and I really appreciate her offer.

Over this weekend I hope to get her a list of all the tunes we currently play and some sheet music in the mail for the ones where she does not have the book I drew the tune from.

If you have a specific tune in mind that you think belongs, add it to this thread and I'll bundle it all up into a single message to Gail (who will see all of this thread anyway). She has the following books: Fiddler's Fakebook, Judi Morningstar's pink book, Portland 1 & 2, Montague Processional, Mike and Dayle's 'Acoustic Potluck' book, and one by Ethan Wizzard who wrote Glass Island.

That is very considerate

That has to be one of the most generous offers I've heard of in a long time. What a great thing to do.
