I like the band Tidal Wave (Raz de Marée)

For TOTM I suggest Quadrille franco-americain No 4. More advanced players could do two tunes or even all three

Track 08 on the album Marche Du St-Laurent from Tidal Wave is these three tunes played together

Quadrille franco-americain No 4

I would like to suggest, any tune composed by Stephan Delicq for Theme of the Month. Most are quite beautiful and many would fit on a D/G I think.

Have avoided artist based themes so far - tempting though this one is, but we did do Bob Cann as I recall so maybe, now that he's passed. I wouldn't call his music easy though - it will all fit on a 2row 8bass, but the man was a genius with it and could and did do things on it I can only dream of...

Nadiejda could make a great tune of the month. It's a simple tune and easy to play on a D/G, but leaves lots of room for variation etc.

My goodness is MySpace still going ? :-) Do you know what type of dance they use this for? I hear it as a slow jig - is it a rondeau? Or a somewhat advanced waltz?
Sorry, I overlooked your question. It is in Naragonia's tune book, filed under 'Musique', so not a waltz, not a jig, but notated in 6/8.

A splendid suggestion (:) - I've been trying to learn this recently with much help with bass chords on the tune thread from Clive and Roland's contributions. I think it's a tune that players at all stages could have a go at and learn a lot from.

Don't know whether this is the right place for this - there doesn't seem to be a "Suggestions for Future Themes" category. I was wondering if we'd done tunes with foods in their titles; I was just playing around with Marmalade Polka, Lumps of Plum Pudding and Jenny Pluck Pears....

Among others, Saltarelle Pastourelle II D/G; Hohner 4-stop 1-rows in C & G; assorted Hohners; 3-voice German (?) G/C of uncertain parentage; lovely little Hlavacek 1-row Heligonka; B♭/E♭ Koch. Newly acquired G/C Hohner Viktoria. Also Fender Jazz bass, Telecaster, Stratocaster, Epiphone Sheraton, Charvel-Jackson 00-style acoustic guitar and other stuff..........

Hope this is OK for ThOTM suggestions as well

There does not currently appear to be a tune in the melodeon repertoir entitled 'Chewing a Wasp', this is clearly a catastrophic oversight on so many levels.

With the wealth of tune-smithing talent out there in melnet land, I would like to suggest for a future ThOTM and perhaps voted on at the month end, a twin theme, best or most appropriate tune composed to become known thenceforward as 'Chewing a Wasp', with a concurrent vote for the composer demonstrating the best CaW face while performing it.

Might I suggest "And the band played Waltzing Matilda" as April 25th is the centenary of the start of The Gallipoli disaster. Question of which key to play it in as I have heard it in G, D, and I think The Pogues sang it in A. Suggestions welcome.

Oh, and singing along is optional.

Johannes Pachelbel - "Canon" in D Major.

It's an arrangement to many instruments together, we see many nice videos with a full orchestra playing.

how about one of Jimmy Shands own compositions  chosen at random  by the individual. He composed over 200 waltzes,horpipes,jigs, reels, twosteps , marches aand even a mazurka.



his best selling 1955 bluebell polka does not count as it was his arrangement of  a tune first recorded in America in1888 as the little pet polka and which he also recorded a version of in the early thirties

A nice simple DG friendly tune is his first composition c1933 the waltz ''lunan Bay''   various utubes of it of varying quality!

one I particularly like is ''the six twenty twostep''  a 3 parter of which the first two are fine on a DG box and the tird in C not so easy!
It was the signature tune of the tv programme the white heather club which was transmitted at twenty past six!  youtube sound track of the man himself playing it

Id like to suggest this great sounding tune. I don't  know anything about it but would like to learn it. I can only find one version of it on a melodeon. I believe its called Haughs o' Cromdale but correct me if I am wrong.

Tunes often have several names - I've always known this as Trallee Gaol.
