Workshop Material - Second Parts for Pete Mac's books 'Band Swing' and 'Band Time'

These items are counter-melody parts for the Barn Dance tunes in Pete Mac's very popular books, and have been made available with his permission. The scores pages are arranged to match the layout in Pete's books, so that you can put these printed pages on the music stand beside the open book and just look across to see the second part. You should note that there are other versions readily available for many of the tunes in Pete's books, which may differ slightly in melody details or harmony - and hence not compatible with the second parts given here. Buy some copies of Pete's books to avoid any embarrassment! You can contact him on 01395 266553 or

Where Pete has provided a tune with both the normal guitar chords and an alternative, the 2nd parts have been arranged to match the normal chord.

Pages marked * are not provided for download. Second parts for these tunes are already provided in Pete's books.

The tunes on these pages are also available individually in .MID, .ABC and .NWC formats
