    music, tuneoftheweekend  [html]
    I've decided to make a real effort to learn more tunes, especially pretty standard ones. My tune list has been slowly getting longer, but there are still a lot of common tunes I don't know. Some of these, though, are well in my head from lots of contra dancing. So I'm going to try to learn at least a tune a weekend. This weekend was "star above the garter".

    I'm also making an attempt to link tunes to images and sound clips. Sometimes people know the same tune under multiple names, or they forget they know a tune, or they want to learn it. Anything that increases the fraction of the time I have tunes I have in common with other people is good.
