westonm, enjoy your journey, and if there's anything more we can do to help, don't hesitate to ask.

Maybe someone could correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought ONeills 1001 gems was only dance tunes. If that's the case then you want 1850 which includes airs too.

Depending on what your needs and desires are, these might be a good resource. Three books from Comhaltas, each with an accompanying recording of all the tunes. Standard musical notation. Also available on Amazon.

They have been helpful to me, as you can listen and learn and have the notation as backup. I use Amazing Slow Downer software on the recordings to better hear and build up speed.

Good luck on your journey.

picking through some of the airs i've found online and in books, it's amazing how many have been used as the basis for hymns. i recognize a lot of them.
