How about 'Bob Cann tunes' for Theme of the Month?  It surprises me how few people play his tunes these days.

I play all Bob Cann tunes as best I Cann

I suggest Pascal Rubens' delightful mazurka: Le lac de St-Croix.

She plays it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpAqVJL23I0.

If it were to be selected as TOTM, Pascal has graciously authorized posting an ABC and a .pdf of the score, which is in the Naragonia Tune Book.
Pascal kindly granted permission to go ahead and post the score.

V:1 should be removed from the header as there is no V:2 and a fatal error is returned preventing the software from displaying staff notation and playing back the midi file.  :o

W: should be moved the the end of the file as it is not a header field and the text will appear after the music if it's not incorporated into the tune body anyway. This should really be an N: (notes field) as W: indicates song lyrics. This last bit is all about abc niceties of course . . .  >:E

Thanks for pointing these out. I will update the original post.

I have been using http://abcnotation.com/wiki/abc:standard:v2.1#the_abc_music_standard_21_dec_2011 as a guide. Is there a better reference to the ABC syntax? I ask because I couldn't find (in that standard) that V: must at least be paired (though it makes sense) and W: is listed as being a Header field.

Just in case this tune makes it through to TotM here it is D an G (or is it Bm and Em, I'm really not sure!) for the average English box player to try out.

Hi Clive/

May I say I really appreciate Melodeon.Net and all the work that you and others put into it - the joy it has given me is unsurpassed - I do feel a bit guilty in that I have never yet got it together to post a tune and I am not sure whether I will be able to manage this one - but although it is called "In continental Mood" in a way - it has got an English feel to it....... and.......  I love this version of it ....... http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=fvwp&v=iBGs7G8OCzI&NR=1
Many thanks ............

Ah, you know how to persuade me! Yes, I love this tune; one of my favourites - not easy by any means, and it requires playing in the upper octave, but a worthy nomination...

Suggestion for "Theme of the Month"...

Most folks on this forum own multiple boxes and are interested in the differences between them.  How about a "Box Comparison" theme?  Pick a standard tune (of the individual players choice) and then play it on multiple boxes so that people can see and hear the differences.  Ideally the takes would be stitched into 1 video/sound file but if the member didn't have software for that they could just link multiple videos/sound files.

Aly's waltz

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW8XlX2qXGc

http://www.thesession.org/tunes/display/5983

Just looking up this one, I can't find a melodeon version, and the initial bass run sounds to me like it'll need more than 8 basses. Anyone tried it on a 2 row 8 bass?

I did come across a version with an interesting side note - 'written for Aly Bain. Traditional Irish'  ???

Write a progressive tune. Make a list of anyone who's interested, then somebody start by composing two bars (or four bars, or whatever), then pass it to the next name on the list. Compose two bars, then pass it on.

Or the first person composes eight bars (A music) that can be used like a rondo, others compose B, C, D music, always returning to the original A music in between.

Visa fran Venjan?
Sorry if this has been suggested before - I couldn't find it, and it might even be a really well known and often played piece but I have just discovered it on Jon Loomes demonstration videos - here at 1min 30s in:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pd89gp2DIPE
I hope I'm not the only one who plays a video incessantly when I find a great tune played by a great player ::)

Visa fran Venjan?

I love it too, and for some reason I can hear Tim van Eyken against the Visa från Venjan. - did he ever record it? I feel it's a good tune to have a go at, its failure to quite resolve to tonic gives it a strange spirituality, a modal restlessness that it shares with Cutting/Wood's Reel de Queteux arrangement (Lusignac).

BTW the youtube GUI now allows a start time to be specified via xxxxxx/xxxx?t=   .. here

  http://youtu.be/Pd89gp2DIPE?t=1m30s

.. or it'll set it up for us via the 'share this video' button (simultaneously cueing Facebook to flog you a holiday in Sweden)  ;)

Would you allow me to suggest another Chris Wood/Andy Cutting tune? South Downs Way, as demonstrated very ably by Mr Roland Carson in this Youtube video, following a nice waltz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WUBZXIanBY

It's a tune that's been rattling around my head for weeks but haven't quite been able to work out how to play it. I'd like to hear other people's interpretations of it.

Suggestion for May 2013 theme - Eurovision Songs. A bit Euro-centric but I'm sure our non-European members will be able to find something fun to play. There's everything from Abba to Lordi in there, via Cliff Richards and Bucks Fizz. Last year's winner was a good one.

I'd probably do "Wolves of the Sea". "Puppet on a String" maybe. So much fun to choose from. ;)

Eurovision is such a legend. No-one outside Europe understands it. :D

And for obscure personal reasons, I really ought to learn "Dancing Lasha Tumbai" which has a bit of PA in I believe.
