Subject: RE: tune names - may I vent?
"...if people want specific esoterically named tunes added, they should be pointing you to a source, nit leaving you to do all the donkey-work!"
Bless you, Tattie Boble. You get the point. I'm not talking about playing music, I"m talking about office work and about making the office work go smoothly.
Here's how our country dance works. There are at least five callers. They meet in secret, and about 3 weeks before the dance, they pick the dances they want to teach. In their minds, a dance and a certain tune are inextricably linked. The leader sends out an e-mail asking for musicians and attaching the sheet music for the tunes. This month, she was abroad and only listed the titles.
That would be fine if composers didn't waste volunteer time with precious titles, fake titles, and titles that are hard to google. That's all I'm saying.
