Since a tied vote or something very close to it appears to be the likely outcome of the January Tune of the Month poll, why not have two tunes of the month for January? That would enable people to chose which one to record or to record renditions of both if they wish.

Jesu joy of man's desiring
This deserves it for its simplicity and suitability for so many solo and group efforts

Been chasing various music for this for a month or more so tks for ABC

Another score with some tips for learning right hand and chords

the nearest to "button" box I have found

It really should be sung along with so that you feel how it soars, though u may need shoulder straps...

here's a homely concertina version

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lNZhYKpAb8

it really is a tune for all instruments together so if you want to accompany a harmonica player that is also available on youtube

and for the really talented radicals  it offers considerable floral possibilities in accompaniment:

Yes it will - you could change it to Ashokan Farewell and put it back in the lead again.  Please.   >:E

How about getting all the people who didn't vote for AF or OIB to cast their vote one way or another?

No reply from Jay Ungar yet - perhaps he is away from home for the New Year. However, judging from his generousity in providing me with the musical notation and giving me permission to share it, I would be surprised if he objected to our using Ashokan Farewell. If I have heard nothing from him tomorrow, I could e-mail him again explaining that we are going ahead but that we will remove our videos from YouTube if he has any objections to our use his tune.

Incidentally, I don't remember us asking Maxou Heintzen for permission before we used L'Inconnu de Limoise.

Hi Bob - 'twas seriously tempted by your idea, and if it had been a tie or near tie, I may have gone for it... but the editorial fountain pen decided that TOTM should encourage people to try things they haven't tried before... so Ashokan gets it this time.

Cheers,

Clive

Juker and LDT, AF isn't my choice of a 'melodeon' tune either....

But, it does crop up very regularly in Sessions, so it is at least worth learning to pick out the melody on the right hand (as I do - the beauty of playing an Oakwood is that the reeds can be made to do quite nice things, even in this mode), rather than having to 'just sit there'. It is popular with fiddlers and bluegrass players, and, if not started by someone partcipating in a Session (eg if it's an English trad Session), then very often it gets requested by someone in the audience - so then someone like Flos Headford will play it to oblige.

However...I have heard some very cringe-making mandolin versions - which have led me to dislike the tune ie with loads of 'tremolo' or 'vibrato', or whatever they do to it! and some very screechy, waily fiddle versions! like LIDL, it is often spoilt when played 'en masse' IMO, rather than as a solo or small - practised - ensemble piece.
