  • Alrighty folks, we have our first Tune of the Month! Looking forward to seeing how everyone gets on with the tune. Just a reminder: feel completely free to change the tune however you want, e.g., transposition, changing notes or even entire bars and sections. Post your settings to the tune page and recordings here by the end of the month. Just have fun with it! And suggest some titles. :)
