No new tune nominations this month I see - may I suggest 'Theme Vannetaise'.  A lovely tune, I'd be interested to see  what melnetters do with it.

A border morris dance called Twiglet more than likely! Good tune suggestion.  :D

Or in the case of a side I belong to a completely different border dance...  ;)

May I suggest Martin Ellison's wonderful A Small Fee. I had a go at it after hearing it as the astonishing track 1 on the 1986 classic LP "English Melodeon Players", I'd only been playing 2-3 years at the time. It's one of those tunes that seems quite impossible, until you try it, feel the groove and (basically) switch off your brain.

Small Fee runs almost entirely on (eg) the main D/G rows, with a lot of melodic movement between the C/C#pull buttons.   The original has a tiny bit of chromaticism at the end of the B music where there's a rising C# D Eb E scale.  If you don't have accidentals, that can be fudged as this classic is  much more "about" a slippery (but actually quite easily fingered) tune  .. played across a really solid left end rhythm. 

Unbelievably, it was the Northwest maestro's first "go" at a tune! "Eee, that's a rum'n" - Dick Nudds

The Lament for Ian Dickson by Anthony Robb. Here he is playing it on Youtube. I have been playing this tune for several years having found it in a tune book, too quickly though as it happens compared to Anthony's almost dirge like rendition (which is of course correct!). I'll continue to play it a little faster but whatever speed you play it at it's still a grand tune!

How about Willafjord Reel? Here's a fairly steady version (not on melodeon!) Heard quite widely and does not seem to be on the list (or have I missed it?)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlRKthg3_6E

Or The Galway Hornpipe - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ruF6c2yrsY  The dots for this can be found on The Session.org
Cheers

Hello,

I'd like to nominate 'Black Joak' a tune I've been sort of aware of for some time without ever really noticing it too much. Since playing the 'Mother of All Morris' album in the office a couple of weeks ago I've become slightly obsessed with it thanks to Jim Moray's splendid version which appears on the album.

This tune has, of course, also been done by Lester as part of his tune-a-day blog and can be found here.

Tune of the month suggestion: "Banks of the Seine".  Tony Hall does a version on "Fieldvole Music" and there is also a simliar version by someone else on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60U9cxYSSHc.  It's tune that could be played very simply or not...therefore might suit different levels of player.

Thanks for spelling it properly!  ;) This months 'Morris Tunes' ThOTM is a perfect opportunity for you to give it a go. I'm wrestling with Oyster Girl and Young Collins as I have no excuse for not contributing this month.

The correct spelling in most if not all Morris traditions for the tune and the dance is Black Joke!
