Finding a tune
Empty search lists all tunes. Asterisk (*) functions as a wildcard. For example, "*saari" will return all tunes that are from places where saari forms the last part of the place name such as \'Viitasaari\'.
Gross contourinvolves spelling out a tune in terms of the direction of its intervals (Up, Down, Repeat). This field only accepts the characters u, d and r. For example, "dduu*" finds tunes where the first two intervals are descending and the next two intervals are ascending.
In the interval search the input is the interval between successive tone in number of semitones. Ascending or descending intervals are denoted by + or -. +0 indicates a repeated note. For example, "+2+2-4*" find tunes which begin with two ascending major seconds followed by a descending a major third (i.e. the beginning of the Frere Jacques).
