Tune of the Month round-up?
« on: November 06, 2012, 10:16:28 PM »

Apologies if this is raking over old muck, I've searched but perhaps with not enough imagination or persistence.

I'm sure I remember that the front page link to Tune of the month used to have a list of all the tunes of the months and links to everybody's videos. I spent many an hour enjoying these when I was first picking up the box.

The TOTM threads are an amazing resource. Discussion of the tunes, as well as the videos themselves provide everything anyone could ever need to learn to play these tunes in a multitude of styles. Having been just a guitar thrasher at the time, I missed La Marianne at the time, but have been catching up today, having recently learnt it from Lester's video. Now I've seen several of the other efforts and comments I'm newly inspired to stretch out and have a go at the minor chords which I'd completely ignored.

There's a sticky page listing all the Tunes that were nominated, but does a page exist which lists all the tunes? Perhaps linked to the top of the threads themselves?
thanks, Steve

I tried to find such a thing yesterday and could not either ... :'(
Maybe there is a special trick to find it ?

It did exist and was maintained by me but became too difficult and time consuming (it was fine when i did it at work but now I'm retired I have too much to do) to maintain  in any semblance of correctness so I took it down  :(

Yes I can imagine it was a lot of work and needed a fair amount of attention every month.

Would a simple page listing all the tunes and their months that linked to the threads themselves work? I.e just a table of contents - you'd have to find the videos in the thread. At the moment it's quite hard work to find the thread for a tune even if you know it has been a totm at some point.

I could probably knock that up as a simple post, but not for a bit - fairly busy for a few days.

For it to be any use you would also have to keeping the thing up to date, which as Lester discovered is a sizeable commitment, and if you want to keep up with everyone's videos that would mean keeping on top of daily changes.  You could do an update once a week, but it is quite a lot of chasing around to get all the links.

Currently working on an index of the monthly titles with link to the thread, far easier to keep up.

Yes that's more what I had in mind. That would only need to be updated once a month. To find the videos it's not too hard to scan through the thread.
If Lester's on the case, then I'm sure he'd make a better job of it. Thanks!

Yeah, it seems to be a variant version from a place called Lemonville ...
