Excellent nomination, I'd certainly vote for it. I fear, however, the D/G box players won't go for it as they seem to struggle to play in C major on D/G. Suppose we could transpose the first section into G?

Do all the tunes suggested make it into the final poll? 'Weasel's revenge' anyone?

OK, now I might actually have to learn it, rather than just having the dots sitting around waiting to be learnt!

I am getting spoilt for choice: Weasel's Revenge, Woodland Revels, Sherborne Waltz/Orange in Bloom, Princess Royal - they are all lovely tunes.  ???

I'll probably do a shortlist of 6 or so tunes to vote on while keeping other tunes on the main list so they may appear in following month's polls, much as happens in the Mandolin Cafe's similar area. Playing it by ear, if you'll pardon the pun... ;D

I propose something in keeping with the month of November

Not so much for November... but I did think in December we could have a lot of fun with a general 'play any Christmas carol/tune you like' remit... Ding Dong merrily on high, In Dulci Jubilo, Jingle Bells, etc all play very nicely, and there's lots more interesting possibilities...

Cheers,

Clive

What about something connected with Thanksgiving / Harvest Festival (Erntedankfest here in Germany) ...  I heard Midnight on the Water played on a hammer dulcimer at Folk Camp Germany this summer and I was immediately spellbound by the tune and the way it "fits" to the hammer dulcimer.
It also has more of a fall/autumn feeling of the beginning of a gentle reflection on the year passing. If it's on the short list it'll get my vote.
BTW Clive you're doing an excellent job .. thanks

Well - here's my suggestion and the dots for folk to have a look at / go at. The Bouree from George Frederick Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks. I've arranged it in G major / E minor - though my the original is in Fmaj/Dmin. So if anyone want a copy in another key please let me know. It's a challenging piece because it modulates between major & minor and it also means that we need to get familiar with the high end of the instrument. Enjoy!

What, what what!....'Classical' music on the melodeon???? Bah, humbug - it'll never catch on  ;)

sounds like a sensitively played 1 voice box would add a little softness.....

My grandfather wrote a great tune called Autumn in Glenaffric, but never published the dots, I'll see if I can write them down in time

That would be grand! I don't suppose there's any chance of an ABC file is there?

I haven't had a chance yet but will see what I can do.  I'm no master at abc but I'm someone will be able to convert it when I get the dots out of my head and onto a page.

Dots as promised, took longer than I thought, also taken a few attempts to attach it onto there but never mind,

original key is B major, sounds fantastic but I know it's not possible for all, so I've transposed it to C, but any key will do!

Beautiful waltz, I'm sure you'll agree, one of my fave tunes written my grandfather

Thanks for that Graeme - next time you've got your camera set up, you couldn't do us a quick recording by any chance could you?

L'Inconnu d'Limoise (French mazurka by Maxou Heintzen) - and here's a nice version of it.


I really like this.

Otherwise, Orange in Bloom would get my vote. (need to learn it).

cheers

agreed excellent tune, and I need to practise waltzes this'll get my vote uness something else pops up that attracts.  Still listening to it, I like the chords on there own variation at the end (i often do that myself, although not generally at the end).
