Heirs of Monroe: Tune of the Week 2010

Wendy Anthony - Editor

John Bird has launched a new TOW version in 2010, focusing on the playing of bluegrass mandolin players who are the Heirs of Bill Monroe's style.

Tune of the Week (TOW) was started in April 1999 as a way of choosing tunes to learn on the mandolin & discussing how to play them with other members of CoMando ListServe. TOW continued from 1999 until 2004, reviving once again in 2007, 2008 & 2009.

Note: Tunes are available as tef files in Mandozine's TablEdit Archives or abc text files. The tef link will take you to the TablEdit Archive Search Results page, where you can download the tef file by either clicking directly to open up the file in TablEdit or Right-click to download the file to your computer. You need either TablEdit or free TefView to use the tef files. See Related Links sidebar for information about using these files as well as links to previous years' TOW files.
