Thanks Dianne, actually I have picked the melody out and it isn't as difficult as I expected and it IS a beautiful piece of music. I expected PR to be a relative doddle (compared to LIDL) but quite struggled with it so maybe this won't be so hard! Thanks for the encouragement  (:)

Yep - in general if there's a tune that comes 2nd and beats other tunes by a large margin, that tune gets through to the next poll, and the other tunes it ran against don't appear until it either wins or stops coming 2nd...

That doesn't make a lot of sense written down I know, but it kind of does if you can figure out what I mean. Anyway, quick answer... yes.

Cheers,

Clive

Would anyone consider having a month where we could propose our favorite tune by T. O'Carolan? Very many of his tunes fit quite well on the box and there are several that would be good material for beginners, as well as more experienced players......... :||:

I do like the idea of a 'theme of the month' running alongside 'tune of the month', rather like we did last month with the Christmas tunes... this would make a very nice theme. What do people think of a 'theme of the month' concept? Any thoughts of other themes we might consider?

Cheers,

Clive

I like the idea of a theme, gives an oppertunity to have a go if you are bamboozled by main tune. (What about a nautical theme or as ive noticed several mentions in other threads what about playford tunes)

I would certainly second the idea of having a 'theme' running alongside the main TOTM - and O'Carolan, as above, is an excellent suggestion (eg the Draught and Concerto are certainly wonderful tunes - and just playing on the melody side, will present a challenge, and do them justice). This would give a lot more choice and scope in what is otherwise a good underlying cocept - it's just that I feel the current TOTM series has got rather stuck in a rut of somewhat hackneyed 'popular' tunes heard in sessions throughout England, which may tend to limit general appeal and inclusivity. Whereas, there are just so many great tunes out there, from all different traditions, etc. - which have been under-represented in the polls so far.

[/quote]
So you reckon to have Trade Wind Hornpipe pretty slick by June, eh?   ;D  There doesn't seem to be any genuine connection between hornpipes and sailors outside of operetta, but most have a nautical title.  Certainly if you tried dancing a hornpipe on my boat you'd deserve it when you trip over the guardrails. 
Don't mind the crew playing hornpipes aboard, though.  Beats the c##p out of some dirge like shanty...

Mind you, there isn't much connection between swimming and sailors either.  The exception was a crew on one of the J class yachts (pre-war aristocracy) - a family of fishermen who were paid off once the boat was on the final leg and would jump ship and swim ashore, reducing the weight of the yacht.  The racing rules now require the boat to start and finish with all crew aboard!

We missed out May  ???

Long ago I ran the first week of May evening at my University folk club as "anything you like as long is it has some connection (or reference) however vague to May". So that might work a a theme - it worked just champion the first time through.

   Personally it'd be Bert Lloyd's "Bonny Black Hare" A tune perhaps never yet attempted on melodeon ....

PS Whoops - just spotted Ollie. Above still on offer nevertheless as Morris was is technically associated with Whit, and was discovered on Boxing Day

I think a jig would be good for February, we've had 4/4 and 3/4 (I just noticed that Clive's LIDL abc was 9/8 :o, mine wasn't :|bl) and I really must get to grips with a jig!

Don't worry - it'll be on the next poll. Not sure what else will be on it yet though - have to have a little think.

I also wouldn't mind a jig. (The Plane Tree springs to mind.)

Added to the nominations list - thanks for the idea!

Cheers,

Clive

Shouldn't it be Welsh tunes in March?
