Thread Name: tune names - may I vent?
Subject: RE: tune names - may I vent?
Consistency for indexing tunes is a great idea. As a maker of tunes sometimes (i'm still finding great trad one's to play and learn as well), I like to have fun with the titles. We have a series of tunes made up for our cats. I'm not sure how many would be dance appropriate, but there you go. I hesitate to say I compose tunes, as to my mind Mozart is a composer, I just mess around. I've wanted to try making up a tune called The trickling old lady and the dribbling old man, but of course it would have to be a slip jig. I'm the one guilty of scanning and sending Cupoftea the Skye Collection version of The King's Reel, by the way. Love getting challenging requests in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wish my knees could still hold up and I'd be able to dance, but there you go. Sorry for the thread drift.
