Spring is in the air (almost) and I'd like to nominate V'la l'printemps by Bruno le Tron. Brave perhaps, but actually not too difficult. And it'd break new ground for a lot of us - rather differently from  Speed the Plough

  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NllYQWAtOBE (first tune thereof, thanks to Thomas)

Do you have the notes or ABC as it would be a non-starter for me without them, and I may not be on my own.

Sorry - I may have missed them, but do we have any dots/ABC as would probably vote for V'la if so!

Yes... but I'm a bit confused about what that actually means! :D  Can you name some tunes that would qualify?

It would be the first tune you learnt properly on melodeon. My case I think that was bobbie shaftoe.

I'd be really intrigued to see what people started with...especially the more advanced.

Transplanted ....

... I had the idea that if you number the notes of a scale from 1 to 9 what sort of tune would appear. I know that there are only 7 different notes so two notes appear twice. So, in G it will be from G to A an octave up. Most of what I've tried so far has been rubbish but some interesting melodies are appearing. There is some leeway in that the length of the note can vary. It also has the benefit of keeping the tune compact and within most peoples singing range. Could tunes written this way even find a home in Theme for the month? ...

Theme of tunes based on our phone numbers or in internet numeric addresses?  fwiw Simon Jeffes's 'Cage dead' written soon after John Cage's funeral starts with the notes ..  (you can work it out).

btw mine was Waltzing Mathilda - a daughter of same name was still 'in arms' at the time :|glug  And hence my 'Tilly' reference to Gavin.

I don't know if this is the place to suggest this idea:

how about a thread for "Tunes that go well together"?

I've just posted a TOTM contribution, and I added another schottische piece to it because I enjoy playing them together.
I, for one, would very much like to hear others' views of tunes that complement each other well.

Would that be worthwhile for anyone else?

Cheers

Won't be in there. I think the mudley medley is the curse of creative music.
Surely so much better to do different things with the tune in hand  ;)

  Of course many others differ ...


[edit] Tee hee! A thread under 'Tune Drift' would be quite apposite  >:E

Thanks for the idea - I think posting medleys in any Theme of the Month is fine, but I'd say this thought is probably too broad a topic for a theme in its own right...

Cheers,

Clive

Fair enough ... I can see it being very broad, so I take your point.
Perhaps a broad thread in its own right (under "General Discussions" rather than under TOTM grouping), along the lines of "Thread Drift"?

I'd like to suggest Battle of the Somme, its such a beautiful tune and works fantastically on the box.

Here is a sublime version (the tune at the beginning, not the song) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SS8oF1XxCmc

Ah ha, the theme tune from Sidmouth-en-Somme, 2009! (I still have the scar from the trench-foot I acquired...).

It's also time for something up tempo and English IMHO  :|glug
Good idea Chris.
How about Redowa Polka from Sussex (Michael Turner's MS)? It's a cracking three-parter and one of my favourites.
I learnt it from the playing of dear departed Barry Callaghan (of 'Hardcore English' fame). We played it together in many a pub session.
Here's an ABC version just slightly modified from the Lewes Arms tunebook collection.

Revisitation of Skirmish -
I have just posted a YouTube video of Skirmish being played by Nick Barber (the composer) for White Rose Morris (for whom it was written) last Saturday.

As definitive a version as you could get, interestingly different from the written version, but I well know how that happens.

As for the "Nick's Maggot" title, I'm afraid I missed the opportunity to ask him about it yesterday.
