Man walks up to an East Ender "Bob Hoskins"  8) type and asks for directions to a fancy dress party in ChesWick "ChisWick" adding that he has nothing to wear and does not even know how to get there.

The gangster quite naturally replies "Wear the fox hat".  :|glug

Don't know where Cheswick is. Certainly not London. Even Chiswick isn't in the Eastern part of the smoke. Still didn't get the joke. :|bl

Prince Charles is at the W.I in Machynlleth wearing a foxes pelt on his head, brush and all. Obviously someone asks him why. In his explanation, he re-counts the conversation at breakfast with Her majesty:
   "What is one doing today Chas?"
   "One is addressing the W.I at Machynlleth Mummy."
   "Oh! Wear the fox hat."

Like a lot of these tunes there is often more than one version of a joke - see my last post. It's nowt to do with Chiswick.



How about Maggie Morrisey as a suggestion for a future tune of the month?

We pair Maggie Morrisey with Jackie Tar - a lovely set of hornpipes.

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

As it's so popular right now, why not just do a version of the RATM tune instead?  Obviously, it wouldn't work well just as an instrumental version, so you'd have to include the lyrics as well.   :o

For anyone who is thinking of voting Orange in Bloom (cracking tune) then ABC from the Morris Ring is below. Note, for non-Morris people, that the slow section does not come after the B section but after the A section. I think that we dance it A.2(2A.3B).2(2A.3C).2A but don't quote me on that :P

How about Click go the Shears? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ag8Yqvs8h54

I'd think it had lots of potential for you 8-bass+ folks and it's a splendid if neglected little tune...

I recall (you were quite probably there, Gavin) Nic Jones saying his "Strike the Bell" was the predecessor of Rolf Harris's version, but you never know with such things.

As for the Sherbourne Waltz - I'll not vote for it as I already play it too much - but it is that good on a 2 row, I promise you.  Talk about useing ever button of the 8-bass.   I'll surely get a raft of fresh ideas if we go that way so vote away ...

1) Wasn't Shear Clicking done first by Shirley Abicair on the Zither, some time previously?
2) How about "Up Shares, Down Shares"?

I vote that if Machynlleth is chosen participants be required to pronounce the name of the tune as well as play it.

Living in Welshpool puts me en route between Birmingham and Machynlleth.
I'm often stopped in the street and asked "Can yow tell moy the woy to Muckin Elleth? Is eet any where near Dolly Geloo?"

Machynlleth looks like a fantastic tune!

Yes, c'mon people, vote for Orange in Bloom. ;D It's a beautiful tune and is so much fun to play on box and really lets you experiement with the basses, especially if you play it as a waltz.  :M

As much as I love AF, for me, it doesn't fit nicely on the box, and I think oom-pah basses rips what is a beautiful tune to shreads. It should (imo) be played smoothly and that can't be managed on a quint box very easily. Also, it has notes that disappear off the end of the box. I fear that it isn't a tune that is accessable to everyone and that it may put beginners and even some intermediates off joining in because it is too hard.

Yay, I'm with you Ollie, let's have Oranges in Bloom. It looks playable in a month, but it'll take me a year to learn Ashokan Farewell  :(  Beautiful tune that it is.

It fits nicely on a D/G box with a low B.  Agree oom-pah basses are not appropriate, but there are many other bass possibilities.  With a small amount of row crossing it can be played quite smoothly.

It's not as hard as it appears, but it does need a little planning of the fingering.
