Hello,
It's been a while, but I have some suggestions here :
This one is fun to play : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIFl5BsK1VQ
The Carillion (jig, quite well played here http://www.myspace.com/maymonday)
Lusignac, a nice waltz from Chris Wood
Jolie nanon, a Breton melody (and probably from other French areas), it is possible to hear it (though only once) here : http://medias.albumtrad.com/en/extraits/00645/009179-jolie-nanon.mp3, a longer version here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9DJvn6aMU8

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

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

Another vote for this one from me. Recently I've been messing around with this tune, mostly using it to improve my fingers' knowledge of where the same notes fall across the D and G rows, playing on the row and across rows to give the tune a different feel.

As a melodeon toddler (playgroup on Friday  :||:) I would be interested to see what the big kids of the forum make of this tune.

Well we covered tunes from England a couple of months back which was intended to cover this too; the trouble with doing someone's repertoire specifically is it's not obvious to everyone which tunes are in that repertoire and which aren't...

How about a 'classical' theme of the month? There are several Handel and Bach pieces that go very well on a melodeon.
A Bb/Eb seems to be a most suitable box for these but any keys will do.

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.
