Subject: RE: Waltz Set List - 2003 FSGW Getaway
I'll repeat some of my comments from the Contra dance thread.... Please contribute your suggestions, as Pauline did above. That way you'll all feel that it's "your" workshop.

On the other hand, if a song isn't generally known, it may not work for the group. But if you really want to do it, and can provide the music to the rest of the group, and the others agree, go for it.

My two cents worth -- which may be worth less than that -- is that the more familiar the tunes are, the better.

Myself I'm not familiar with most of the above. But then I'm not much of an instrumentalist and because my zither prefers a-minus-diminished-retrograde tuning, I can't jam with it anyhoo.

BTW are you all aware that Dottie Hurley's "Three-Quarter Time" sing-around will have plenty of room for instrumental accompaniment? She suggested it after last year's Getaway. It's going to be a sing and jam and dance, we hope.

Oh. And see the Contra thread for my comments on getting together to practice if you want to.
