All the nominated tunes and themes in one place
« on: October 10, 2009, 12:09:45 AM »

The following tunes have already been suggested for future tune of the month poll -for more details, or to nominate more candidates please see the main future suggestions thread.

By no means all of these tunes will make the next poll - this is where a little editorial discretion comes in - I'll pick 4 tunes from the list representing a reasonable cross-section of types of tune and ability level; we then leave the rest to the poll to choose which of those becomes the official TOTM. Those that don't make the poll can still be picked in future months.

If you've nominated a more, shall we say, obscure tune and want to increase it's chances of making it to the poll, or indeed winning the poll, please post a link to a .mp3/youtube video of it so that we can have a quick listen.

Here's the current list - any I've missed?
