Our first democratically-elected Theme of the Month is: Waltzes. For those who are interested, here's how the votes break down:
Stephen Foster: 7 (19%)
Appalachian: 9 (25%)
Waltzes: 18 (50%)
Summer: 2 (5%)
If you were pulling for one of the other categories, don't worry: we'll give them another chance later on!
For the moment, though, we need some tunes to choose between. Please nominate your favorite waltz, either by posting your thoughts here, or by e-mailing your choice to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For this month, please nominate tunes that are playable on a two-key diatonic 'harp -- we'll go for something more chromatic next month!
Beginning next week we'll vote on the four tunes that have been nominated by the most people. If no two people pick the same tune, I'll just have to draw them out of a hat.
Nominations are now closed. The most-suggested four tunes are in the poll in the upper right: please vote for your favorite! Here are all of the suggestions:
