By my reckoning (I'm sure someone will correct me), we've had 5 English, 2 Scottish, 2 French (by the same chap!) and 2 American. Sounds a nice mix to me. Old Joe Clark is a nice nomination; I'll stick it on the list, but next month, let's face it, Canal in October is going to win.

Oh I hope so  8)
If not, you'll have to make 'Canals' theme of the month. :P

may I be the first to nominate anything to do with "fast" .. for Lent.

Something 'lento' for Lent would be much more appropriate to my ability level  :D

Bearing in mind that Liberty Bell March is not an easy tune on the melodeon (others may find it easy, but it is taking me a long time to master it - although I hope to be able to post something before the end of the month), perhaps we should balance things up by nominating and voting for something quite easy for next month. That way, those who consider Liberty Bell March beyond them might feel inspired to post a video or audio file of their rendition of October's Tune of the Month. My suggestion would be Walter Bulwer's No.2.

Nothing wrong with simple tunes - some of the tunes I most enjoy playing are not by any stretch of the imagination difficult, and it's an old axiom that it never hurts anyone to go back to basics.  A simple tune would encourage the less experienced, while the challenge to the old hands would be to take a tune we know inside out and find something new to say with it. Sounds like a good idea to me......

It might be a crazy idea but....what about a theme of the month of "Untitled' tunes?
As you couldn't add it to the tune of the month coz there's no title but for a theme it might be quite fun.

Putting forward interpretations of an untitled tune may well have it debarred later as someone else here is bound to be able to identify it Sarah, then you'd have to learn another, and another  ;)

Hope you have managed to de liquify your keyboard, drinking and surfing just don't mix, especially if alcohol free  :|glug

Probably should have put it here.

Robin Griggs Tribute TOTM?

Anyone interested in making the January 2011 TOTM "anything written or performed by Robin Griggs"?

Wonderful idea, but I feel that many of Robin's tunes have so many 'interesting' rhythms it may be too difficult for beginners for contribute.

Agreed. I found them hard enough!
There again Kai has been learning them at the age of 10, but he's clever.

I feel strangely uncomfortable about this, though it's hard to explain why.
