I have forgotten whether this is Wikipedia or Wikimedia - but scout around, and you'll be able to find a vast library of free, online sheet music.

It's been a while since I've checked out the links in an article I wrote for DG (only a draft), but some led to sheet music of different degrees of easiness/difficulty - http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/566811/ Scroll down to the section on Music, and you'll find links to sheet music for beginners and on up to higher levels of difficulty.

ps - copyrights keep yo-yoing, so if you find some music you really like or would like to learn, download it now, because it might not be there for long.

You're welcome. One of my neighbors once asked, "How hard can it be to play one note at a time?" I think this next website leads to jazz, popular, baroque, classical, medieval chants, etc. with lots of easy stuff:

A tree, unplugged electronics, a recorder and a guitar and me and thou - that's a garden at its most heavenly

yes

Edited to add that there probably is a quote somewhere with similar structure and phrasing which I unconsciously tweaked to take that potshot at omnipresent electronics - let's not get me started on that one.

bluespiral,
What a LOL hoot!
As a pianist, guitarist and violinist, "How hard can it be to play one note at a time?" is a quote I shall enjoy for years to come.
The shame of it is, the person will never know that it takes at least five years before a violinist STARTS to sound good to other violinists. Even though at about 3 years you start playing chords and aren't really playing one note at a time.
I consider this, sorry Mozart, the finest piece of music ever written.
