"Dance of the Lunatics"

It is on the Mandolin Cafe's Mp3 page under classical music - played by the Nashville Mandolin Orchestra.
Other versions are on YouTube.

Here's my attempt at the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, pdf attached. It was supposed to be the start of something multi instrumental -maybe next year.

I usually play "The Munsters Theme" around Halloween.

Funeral March Of A Marionette (aka Hitchcock Theme) is suitably eery:



Arrangement by Evelyn Castiglioni, from "Evelyn's Big Book For Mandolins For The Year 2015" (available from Amazon, NFI).

Not as sophisticated as the other suggestions, but I like to break out Spade Cooley's "It Dark Outside" around this time of year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFmUaZed950

Monster Mash - 4 chords...1, 6, 4, 5 throughout the entire song, so in G = G, Em, C, D

Fun to play and everyone wants to know..."vut-eva happen to my Trrrransylvania Twist?" :mandosmiley:

Spookiest "fiddle tune" I know is "Jump at the Sun." Found this on YouTube with mandolin and looped guitar:



Here's the original, by the guy who wrote it (John Kirkpatrick) on accordion -- skip ahead to 7:00 in the clip:



Here's a link to the tune on thesession.org database, where you can find various settings in different keys (the original is Dm, works fine on mandolin), and can print out PDF sheet music:

Ichabod's Last Ride is a cool and spooky tune.

Just wanted to remind folks of the free collection of 13 Halloween mandolin trio arrangements with chords that I posted a year ago.
