The Traditional Tune Archive

As a new contributor, you may feel a little overwhelmed by the sheer size and scope of this project called The Traditional Tune Archive. Don't worry too much if you don't understand everything at first, as it is acceptable to use common sense as you go about editing. The Traditional Tune Archive not only allows you to create, revise, and edit tunes and annotations, but it wants you to do so. You just need to remember that you can't break The Traditional Tune Archive and although there are many protocols, perfection is not required, as The Traditional Tune Archive is a work in progress. Collaborative editing means that incomplete or poorly written first drafts can evolve over time into excellent tune scores and annotations.
