Bill Monroe: Tune of the Week 2009

Wendy Anthony - Editor

John Bird has launched a new TOW version in 2009, focused only on the playing of Bill Monroe.

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.

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.

Tune Discussions in CoMandoList Archives can be searched using one of these formats:
      - Search for: "Tune name" (type/copy/paste the name in quotation marks)
      - Subject contains: Monroe TOW (add the number, without leading 0; eg: TOW 2)
      - Subject contains: Monroe (for all discussion about Monroe).
