I tried to search the archives but had no luck.

I am looking for online resources for tunes for SSP's preferebly in PDF or ABC format. I have seen Jack Campin's 9 note tunebook, some tunes fit, some don't, most need to be transposed at the least. Highland collections are also helpful.

There's an ABC collection of bagpipe tunes archived here http://web.archive.org/web/201306210254 ... CTUNES.zip if that's any good, and if you're willing to venture into some Welsh-orientated tunes, try John Tose's collection here http://www.mochpryderi.com/Resources/To ... 0Tunes.pdf :)

I found this link and it has many tunes that would fit well.

If you are a member of the LBPS then you can download 'The Blue Book' as a PDF free from their website, you will need to log in first though

There is also 'Tune of the Month' available from the same website plus various links to manuscripts.

I looked all over the site but couldn't find "The Blue Book" pdf download. I am logged in, do you have the link?

Hi
Once you have 'logged in' there will be a members section on the right of the page, in that section there is a download link.
Download page is http://lbps.net/lbps/downloads.html
Blue book page is http://lbps.net/lbps/downloads/101-committee-sessions-teh-blue-book.html
