Having just looked at the list of nominated tunes, it does not include Ashokan Farewell, which two or three of us suggested a few days ago would make a good Tune of the Month.

If an ABC is provided then you can paste it into Navigator or similar and it will play it for you.

And I think that providing an ABC should be necessary for a tune's inclusion.

EDIT: I don't think that anyone's mentioned Waterman's yet, I nominate it (:)

How about Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring by JS Bach? Fits really well on box. Not sure where to find the abcs though!

Almost totally disagree with this (in a fully supportive manner). If someone wants to punt a tune for the ToTM they must supply ABCs or youTube or equivalent so people can make a judgement.

I fully understand what and why you're saying that Lester, but as Steve said:
Quote
It would be exclusive to insist on dots before a tune could be nominated.

And I think there's a danger that we could miss a trick or two by insisting that folk provide dots/ABC before submitting a tune for nomination. And there's a danger that a really great tune could be missed out on simply because the person concerned did not have the confidence or ability to support their nomination with the technical stuff. Actually what I'd hope would happen in that situation would be that the person would share their tune idea with the forum and someone would step into the breach. However, we are a worldwide phenomenon (!) on this forum and I just love the idea that any member can chip in with a tune idea and it get taken up and performed by the whole forum. I'd hate to lose that.

By the way - I third Ashokan Farewell - it was suggested by a few of us a few days ago as a strong contender. Though I do seem to remember it being shot out of the sky because it was difficult to play on a D/G box ( ??? ) - I understand the predominence of D/G system on this forum - but I repeat, we're a worldwide phenomenom (I've only written it twice to convince myself that my spelling is ok!)

I haven't discounted it at all - I just haven't updated the nominated tunes list yet. It's a perfectly good nomination, and the fact that it has a little bit that needs accidentals on a D/G doesn't disqualify it - Patapan last month also needs an accidental to play it. No promises until we have a final list of nominations, but it's highly Ashokan's Farewell will make the poll because several people have now expressed a liking for it. Whether it'll win or not remains to be seen though, because tunes that can't easily be played on particular instruments will lose votes relative to those that can - but we leave that to the power of the poll.  :D

Cheers,

Clive

I agree, it's a nice tune and I may even enter into the fray meself - I've only heard the midi so it's a good test for a relative newbie...

How about Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring by JS Bach? Fits really well on box. Not sure where to find the abcs though!

Could you stick up a video when you have a camera out? I see how the first bit works, but I'm not sure where the rest goes!

Cheers,

Clive

Will try to. I have a simplified version which doesn't have the sections where the modulation happens (ie, most of the piece!) but the main theme and slow bit work. I could try and post the scanned dots when I have time too.

A number of people seem to be in favour of Ashokan Farewell. Those who don't already know the tune might like to check the Favourite Slow Airs thread, where I have already posted the sheet music for it (with the author's permission). To hear it played on the fiddle by Jay Ungar, who wrote it, click on this link

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sx6dxrhqPZY

Sorry, I don't do ABC but, if it wins, I am sure that someone will convert the dots into ABC.

Those who like Ashokan farewell, do they know it has an unusual chord in it that could cause trouble when playing it on a squeezebox (now speaking 2-row or less)?

Wow Ashokan Farewell is such a beautiful tune ... i will learn it anyway ....But as a future TOTM i would prefer something more up tempo. ... to mess with Ashokan Farewell would be a crime as it sounds so beautiful as a slow Air!
As with uploads / suggestions like Susi ... I don't do dots / I don't do ABC  so Audiovisual or Sound only for me!

Al, this tune can be played quite successfully on almost any quint tuned box ( ;D). It helps a bit if you can stop the thirds on the left hand, but not necessary. On a D/G box, you would be on the D row for the melody......jwf

Yes, there is a chord shift, but  It's there under those buttons, truly. ;)
