    Default Poll for Song a Week Social Group Week #497

    This poll is for the Song A Week Social Group Week #497.

    One vote per member of the social group. Please feel free to link to videos of these tunes, as a reply to this discussion, to help others decide!

    If you are a regular member, you know that our polls have been weekly polls, for years, but that over the last few months I've been experimenting with changing that. Our poll will be a biweekly poll. Hopefully, that interval will be enough to keep your interest, and also give you enough time to learn it. I will try to post the winner in a timely manner on Friday, May 3, in the Song A Week Social Group forum.

    If you are not yet a member, there's a link at the bottom of this post that will take you there! Please join us over there!

    If you ARE a member already, and one who participates in these polls, I am in need of new tune suggestions! 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 in the discussion in the social group, called Poll Tune Suggestions. 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! If you can also link to notation or a video along with your suggestion, that would be a great help! I'm depending on you members to keep this group alive!

    I found these two while searching 'Dark haired girl', but they are definitely not Oldtime -my favourite, by the way.
    The first the melody would have to be learned by ear, they're singing in a strange language, the rhythm starts on the upbeat, is not so easy, but there's a nice sort of repeat of the simple melody a third above.
    Good exercise with something quite unfamiliar but fun.
    The second is quite different. In the song the girl sings that the Cosack soldiers will hear her name in the clatter of the hoves of their horses feet. They all laugh about this so I guess noone got hurt. What I like though is that there are lots of these guys who got paid to play the mandolin...
