Here's ABCs and/or video links of most of this month's polled tunes, stripped out of various threads on melodeon.net. If you haven't used ABC's before, please see Lester's article for a full explanation of how to use it. The three not covered here, Spirit of the Dance, Orange in Bloom and Young Collins can all be found using JC's tune finder.

Thanks to all nominators, ABC transcribers and video makers, both known and unknown.

Regards,

Clive
