(title is a misquote from a comedy show...points for anyone who guesses it)
Anyway back to the matter in hand. I'm looking for Tunes that span the traditions. Ones that come up in many traditions.
I would like to learn them so wherever type of session I go to I can play at least one tune.
Only one I can think of is soldiers joy. Anyone got any others?

One much-documented one is the six-note playground tune that is the first line of "Ring around the Rosey."
