I can't see how an F chord could possibly sound right against an A and a C# in the melody ......

It's not the C# but the D that matters.
Which makes the F chord a bit more of an inverted D minor (which would also work) or an F6.

Good Lord, this one's turning out to be a squeaker!  Cheshire Waltze came out of nowhere to grab the lead!  What will the next 24 hours tell us???

I totally loved Dark island. I hope I'll manage to participate in Feb. This month I didn't even manage with ThOTM. Oh sigh.

I'm tempted to play and record all the tunes in the poll.
I'd have to learn Dark Island but that seem a worthwhile enough venture.
Cheshire Waltz is a local session favourite. (also Comet Waltz in John Clare)
Redowa Polka is an old favourite but I can't bear to listen to to all those A chords in the C music. (it should go C F G C; on a two-row I play C D G C but as everybody else does G A G C * it's a horrible mess.)
Dark Girl plays itself...

* as did I once, until my lovely wife pointed out the obvious: it's a bog-standard I-IV-V-I sequence in the key of C

I'm hoping you're still intending to do this Anahata, at least Redowa, as I still don't get how those basses fit the tune. Do share your version! Ta. Pops McG (:)
