I was wondering when the voting for january would begin because after the 24th I'll have very limited internet and 'polls' don't show up on my mobile internet.

It would be nice if we had a jig as next month's tune; so far we've had something in 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4, so now it should be time for some 6/8! I therefore submit to the house Hunt the Squirrel

While I'm sympathetic to say 3-4 Cotswold Morris tunes over a year,  I personally think two in a row might not be best strategy.

I'll probably vote for Ashokan's Farewell as something completely new to me. Otherwise I'd like something else new. I'd even go with Cajun - I quite fancy something with blue corners. Chris (ex musician Mersey, & Mockbeggar Morris)

Erm, as far as I know, that version of Hunt the Squirrel isn't a Cotswold tune... the Headington one (which, I hasten to add, I despise with a passion) is in 4/4.

I expect I'll set it running around the 23rd.

Well looks like Ashokan Farewell is going to win TOTM *sigh*....so I won't be taking part. Its impossible. More impossible than L'connu.

Bit early yet to guess although the exit poll looks as if it might be going that way. As too "It's impossible" (note correct use of apostrophe) it isn't and "I won't be taking part" is defeatist which I never expected to hear from you. Ask for help, sure someone will produce tablature - button/finger numbers/manuscript/ABC or whatever else is you personal way forward.

Now go and stand in the corner.

You wanna know what my problem is with it.
1) There is no 'hook' in the tune to grab hold of. Its one of those 'bleugh' noise tunes that just won't stay in my head because they could be anything. It doesn't have any 'stand out' bits I can remember.

2) Not only is it on the D row (which I'm rubbish at) but 5th and 6th bars contain notes that...well I don't know where to find! Like the one below the stave with two lines through it....where on earth is that note? I'd be ok on the concertina but melodeon I'm lost. >:(

Low "A".  Second button, push.   There are some low "B"s as well, though, which aren't available on a standard D/G with accidentals.

Here's my suggestion for a future tune:
Machynlleth - an absolutely stonking Welsh processional tune. The ABC is given below. Not too difficult, but watch out for the 4th bar of the B-music. It doesn't do quite what you might expect! If you've got the facility for a G-drone, stick it in on the C-music.

That looks like a great tune Steve - will definitely give that a go anyway!

LDT - you need to start a facebook movement to overturn the 'inevitable'. Choose 'Young Collins' as your RATM number and you'll win by a country mile  ;D

Don't tempt me.  >:E I decided to vote strategically and choose the nearest rival which appears to be Orange in Bloom.

Thanks Ellie!

Hopefully, here's a link to the audio file ....

http://www.onmvoice.com/play.php?a=11550

It's a very early attempt at multi-tracking - 2 tracks on a D/G melodeon, 2 tracks on a G/C melodeon, two tracks on whistles and one track on percussion (me banging the desk top with my fingers!)

A nice tune, Steve. To my ear, it sounds more central European than Welsh, but what do I know? [Probably written by an Austrian who spent a holiday in Machynlleth.]  ;) ::)

I vote that if Machynlleth is chosen participants be required to pronounce the name of the tune as well as play it.
I should jolly well think so too!  ;D
