I was thinking maybe as its been running so long and some beginners might find it intimidating to join in...we could have a beginners showcase thread? So the beginners-improver level players can pick any tune that's been tune of the month and put up a video of it? Just to ease them into the TOTM style. I'd volunteer to moderate the thread.

Sounds like a good plan! You're thinking about a sticky separate thread withing the TOTM board I take it? Do you have permissions to do that, or do I need to grant you stuff?

Cheers,

Clive

Yes. Exactly...I will go test to see if I have the permissions. I think do. btw. where is the list of all the tunes that have been chosen for totm? Just so I can list or link to the list.

In my head unfortunately! You could also get it from Lester's 'all the performances' spreadsheet though.

I would like to participate, but currently the technical aspects of making the video are an added hurdle to learning the songs. I know there's a forum category for that, and it looks very helpful. I do plan to study it.

A video is not essential, just an audio recording will do fine.

Theme Idea:   Irregular time signatures e.g. 5/4, 7/8, 11/8, 12/8..... ??? etc etc.
Building on Ollie's posting of Bobbityshooty.
OK it's a bit esoteric maybe, but not in the Balkans. And great on the melodeon, as the basses can spell out the irregular divisions.

And not in Alsace!  I support this idea!
