Black Joke certainly gets a vote from me, as I actually know it (mostly referred to via various forms of groaning when I danced with Adderbury).

Another tune I've been trying to learn recently is the Welsh tune (as far as I know) "Hunting the Hare", which the Cardiff morris side dance. There's a number of different ABCs for it over on The Session, though I don't think any of them match up exactly to what Alun plays at the morris :D

I'd love to hear other people's renditions of it as it's quite a sweet little tune and not many Welsh tunes pop up often apart from Sweet Jenny Jones.

I would like to make a suggestion for Tune of the Month. The Abbess by Andy Cutting. I don't think it has been used before, at least I can't find it on the list. It is very, very beautiful and not too difficult to play, so would suit the less experienced like me!  (:)

Young Damon's Flight - a wonderful slip-jig from Playford, which I first heard from Miranda Rutter (of Boldwood and Methera) at the EAC Summer School. The dots can be found here - http://folkmusicnotes.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/young-damons-flight.png - and here's Boldwood playing it - https://soundcloud.com/boldwood/01-young-damons-flight An awesome tune that deserves wider recognition.

Thanks, Ollie! That is indeed an amazing tune. B minor is a fascinating and wonderful key. I shall have a go at that.
Comparing the dots with the Boldwood recording, instead of the written A# minim in bar 2, they play a C# instead which sounds fine and is certainly more melodeon-friendly.  ;)

It is indeed. The dots are of the Boldwoodized version, the original from Playford can be seen here, with another A# (which I think detracts from the mysterious nature of the tune) - http://www.izaak.unh.edu/nhltmd/indexes/dancingmaster/Dance/images/Play5824.gif

Look for my Scottische version of it on my YouTube channel, pikeyh.

Ooh great! I hadn't noticed that you'd done that; I was looking through your channel yesterday and managed to miss it :D

It would make a cracking TOTM!

I still haven't figured out what to do with the basses in it, must get back on it and figure out how to play it properly!
Here's the morris version from Cardiff Morris dancing it in the Nantgarw style: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lutq7hL0Vic

In view of Team GB's success at the Winter Olympics, surely the next TOTM should be "Sweet Jenny Jones".

Please consider Fishers Hornpipe for an upcoming totm.  There is only 1 melodeon version on youtube and it's done on a toy - this situation needs remedied.

I'd like to nominate Four Up for a future Tune of the Month, just because it is a great tune.  Delilah would be pretty cool too.

Following  on from a recent thread, how about 'tunes using more than one key' as theme of the month.
