After watching much of the marathon broadcast of Ken Burns' documentary The War last weekend, I went online to find the notes to "Lili Marlene", which made me think that maybe a TOTM covering soldiers' songs or songs associated with war could yield good things...?

Great idea! There is plenty of material to go at, from all sides in several conflicts.

Still squeezing after all these years.
Mostly on hohners , with a couple of Dinos and a smattering of anglos - and now a Jeffries duet

Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile,
While you've a Lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys, that's the style.
What's the use of worrying?
It never was worth while, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.

I enjoy watching & listening to various interpretations TOTM.

However as a stumbling beginner who doesn't read music, I am often on the lookout for a relatively slow version, played on a D/G, with the buttons clearly visible. This is especially the case if row-crossing is used in the peice, where being able to see what the fingers are doing is really useful.

I wondered if one of the fine people posting a "proper" TOTM could bear to do a second version at an easy-to-follow speed?  It could be a shortened version (just running through the different parts of the tune), or the whole thing.

As a beginner, I feel almost guilty for suggesting this, as I am not in a position yet to take part competently....but I'd have a go, even if I didn't think it good enough to publish on You Tube.

Might I suggest for tune of the month:- 'A piece of classical music'

As it happens Joel Steward just put some classic (CBA) stuff on Facebook

Now there's an idea.....take a simple melody like God Save the Queen and see who can make the most interesting improvisations based around it. A good way for beginners like me to learn more about the range of possibilities in a melodeon but also a way for more experienced players to be inventive and 'stretch themselves' as far as they want. Sorry if I am being silly here!

South Downs - an interesting and quirkly little tune, best played as a slow jig, IMO.

Yep, I do think this is a good idea. Volunteers please!

The Bluebell Hornpipe - a rather wonderful 3/2 taught to me by Ukebert, who was taught it by Sam Sweeney at the EAC Summer School.

Ollie, the last bar of the third line has 9 quavers in length. I removed the A3 at the end of the bar and it sounds ok to me but have I done the right thing or should this be an odd bar of 9/8?

I think it should be a bar of 9/8. To be honest, I don't think the tune is notated correctly at all, but the essence of the tune is there. When I get time, I'll post my 'corrected' version.

Looks to me as though the C crotchet and B quaver shouldn't be there.

As far as I know, all the notes are correct, it's just been badly transcribed.

The transcription's not too far off. The only difference I can see in the way I play it (and that's by no means authoritative) is I don't think I do the quaver pickup note at the beginning of each section. But that's as learnt by ear from players in a session, and variations at that sort of level are hardly part of the tune.

But the bar of 9/8 is certainly correct - that rhythmic quirk is most definitely part of the (charm of) the tune.

How's the speed?

It's slow for a jig, fast for a 3/8 Waltz. I think it was written/is used as a morris tune.
75 would be closer to my idea of the right speed than 80, but I'm sure everyone does it differently.
