    I'm cleaning up this list again! I depend on you all to help me keep this list populated! It's OK to suggest tunes that are already here as 'other tunes', but I'd appreciate it, if when you send me your suggestions, you do a quick check of our 'official tunes' to make sure we don't have a duplicate! You can make the suggestions here in this discussion, along with a video link, if you'd like. It also helps me if you can include the genre along with the title. I try to populate our polls with a variety of tunes, but our list is in serious need of some Bluegrass tunes, and more Old time!

    I have taken tunes out of this list, that were previously in the list, voted on, and either won, or never did. It's perfectly fine for you to suggest a tune that has already been on the list, and never made it, and tunes that are already covered under "other tunes". All I ask is that you don't suggest tunes that have already been a Tune of the Week!

    Christian, delighted to see this posting from you. I know this band well and they are building up a really good following here in Scotland. The guitar player is a close friend (his father and I were English teachers together for many years) and he is married to the fiddler! I was at their wedding.

    Just a reminder that this is the place to make your suggestions for tunes you would like to see in future polls. The discussion that I posted Sept 30, 2019, contains the most recent list that I am working from. If you go back through the past discussions, you will see that I create a new, updated list about once a year (but I edit it throughout the year). I remove tunes that have won previous polls, and I remove tunes that were in polls, but never won. I usually let a tune stay in a poll for 3-4 polls, before dropping it. Please look do a search of 'Table of Contents ~Official Tunes"to make sure this tune doesn't already have a discussion as an official tune, before suggesting it. Other than that, anything goes. It's ok if it's already been an 'other' tune (but it would be nice if you let me know that; you can do that by doing a search of the "Table of Contents ~ other tunes", or if it's been on a poll, and never won. I would greatly appreciate it if you would include the genre of the tune, when you make the suggestion. And, if you have any videos you could link, that helps, too. I take these suggestions, and I add them to the current list. I try to populate the poll with a variety of genre, so that is why it is extremely helpful to me, when choosing the tunes for the poll, for me to know what genre it is.
