I only tend to contact authors when it looks like their tune has a reasonable chance of winning the poll, so we won't pester him quite yet.

Would you mind if I put up an abc file of the tune taken from the PDF that's already been linked to, so those that fancy having a go at it anyway have a midi to listen to?

My suggestions (mostly french stuff):

"Valse du vent": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcGX7x1vJ6I
"Mon amant de Saint-Jean": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqFHYcxxEfs
"La Serenissima": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fh2ZYLhUZxU
...only 3 of so many nice tunes ...
I really like tunes in minor keys

Fine by me, but there's already been a midi file link posted, so you can save yourself the effort!

Has anyone suggested 'La Marianne' yet? Simple tune yet lots of potential (like most tunes I suppose!).

Here is a better sound file for DTN's Pterodactyl:

What a great tune and playing from DTN. But definitely one for the more gifted!

Certainly for the more gifted if you have a standard two row DG. Obviously the only difference between our playing and his is that he has a 2.5 row ;)

Zooks! Ash Grove did well to get in this months poll - I'd only suggested it as a joke in context of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano! :|glug.  Looking back a few hundred posts I see it's been nominated before. And it is a very straightforward tune (assuming it's the same one my dad taught me long ago - "one black'n one white'n")  ;)

Does Anybody have the dots for  Mon Avant de Saint Jean please?

Perodactyl is a great tune, but I think easier on  a 2 1/2 row

It is a tricky tune but it was written and performed on a standard D/G pokerwork. You need 'standard' accidentals, but other than that there's no particular advantage in using a 2.5 row for this tune.

Cheers,
Clive

It's probably easier, but also probably not by as much as you'd think. It is a cracking tune and is possible to play on a standard DG (:)

Came across Corelli's Maggot at the weekend and loved it. Can't play it (D isn't so easy on my G/C) but it might be a nice TOTM and would give me the motivation to learn it

dots here:- http://ecf-guest.mit.edu/~jc/tmp/Tune27136.pdf
and You tube here.-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79oVBCP_O9Q

anyone know the background to this tune?

Great!! I'll give it a go in C (although that's my weak row)
Thanks

It's based, a bit loosely in places, on the fourth (Gavotte) movement of Arcangelo Corelli's Violin Sonata (op 5) no.10 in F.
You can download the score from here: http://imslp.org/wiki/12_Violin_Sonatas,_Op.5_%28Corelli,_Arcangelo%29
