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

That'd be pretty fun. Would it include transposing a tune part-way through or just tunes that are actually written in multiple keys?

or maybe  ''' tunes using more than one key on a one row'' ( or of course on one row of a 2 or 3 row box)

or on similar but different lines  '' tunes with accidentals on a one row''  (''     ''        '''              ''        '')

Nah, too hard for most players. Stick to 'tunes where the A and B (or C) parts are in different keys'

I like it, I don't know how well I could do but could be fun or funny.
also what about playing a tune in one key then switching to another  2nd time though  and third key if you can on a one row or on the row.
Johnny Connolly does this on a lot of tunes because He can, I try to play tunes I know in different keys just to better understand the instrument

How about manuscript tunes from any manuscript other than Playford? Might encourage people to explore the Village Music Project a little.  (:)

Picking up from another thread, how about Cunamulla Stockmans/Stockings jig for Tune of the Month ? It deserves to be played more .

How about Dr Fauster's Tumblers? Probably one of the most rousing tunes out there.

I was under the impression it was an 18th century jobbie. I don't have the "Complete Brass Monkey" CD to hand (it's in the car and it's gin o'clock on a Sunday - remember I'm 2 hours ahead of UK and in a country where the sun gets over the yardarm much earlier than it does further north - and I can't be bothered to go and get it) to check the provenance they give it, but in "Opus Pocus" it's uncredited, which suggests our old friend Anon.  I could, of course, be wrong....... :|glug

It's 18th Century, printed in several publications by Walsh. My late and much-lamented mate Barry Callaghan ('Hardcore English') also cited it as having been published in a late (1726) edition of Playford.

I don't know if it's been suggested before but I'd like to nominate The Sussex Waltz. It's a lovely tune that sounds pretty in it's simplest form but it leaves a lot of scope for the more advanced players to get stuck into.
