What about 'improvisation' as a theme? Could be very interesting!

Good excuse to get the one row out.

Why do you need an excuse...? :D

As in play what your fingers want to play or as in improvise extra bits to existing tunes?

I'd imagine that Ollie has something in mind like the improvisation around a tune as happens in jazz a lot. When the basic tune is still there somewhere if you listen.

Could be both. Just improvising straight off might prove difficult for some, but it would be really interesting to see what people came up with from just, as LdT says, playing what their fingers wanted to play. I actually find improvising around a tune more difficult.

This is a lovely slow air written by Alistair Anderson, the midi playback makes it sound pretty wooden but in reality it flows beautifully. I've never heard it played on pipes and it certainly wasn't written with pipes in mind but I can hear drones going in my head and I'd love to hear what people come up with. So here is the strangely titled Air For Maurice Ogg.

What about theme of 'dance music' - tunes associated with a dance etc.

Did everyone notice that Philippe Bruneau died on 7th August? How about a tunes thread dedicated to his accordion music?

I think it is a nice idea, too.

If it hasn't already been suggested - a Christmas theme for December?  Perhaps just generic "your favourite Christmas tune" for the Theme and something like In Dulci Jubilo for the Tune (might be down as Good Christian Men Rejoice also).  Nice bouncy tune that I think would work well.

: 1
T: In Dulci Jubilo
M: 4/4
L: 1/8
R: hornpipe
K: Dmaj
defg aba-a|defg aba-a|abag f2d2|e-efe defg|
abag f2d2|eefe de (3fed|B2c2d2 a-a/g/|f2e2d4:|

I actually slightly prefer this version I think, although I'm not convinced by the chords:

X: 1
T: In Dulci Jubilo
C: Heinrich Suso 1537
R: jig
Z: 2008 John Chambers <jc:trillian.mit.edu>
M: 6/8
L: 1/8

Heh, that search box doesn't work very well then.  I searched for Jubilo and nothing came up.

I like the Christmas theme; it get's me all Christmassy!  ;)

I wasn't planning to do it again this year though, because the take up when we repeated it last year wasn't that great. But, if people do want it back again, now's a good time to say!

Cheers,

Clive

Well, speaking as the noob in the room, it's a good theme from the point of view of collecting tunes that people are likely to want to hear.  There's always concerts and carolling and so forth going on in December and there's more likely to be a wider audience for folk-style instruments, so having a few festive show pieces up your sleeve can't be a bad thing.

I've got a song somewhere called Christmas in Waikiki.  No idea how it'd work on Melodeon though.
