Probably opening up a hornet’s nest but as I hunt through the website for new tunes that I would like to learn, I find that there are a number of tunes that don’t seem to be all that memorable or catchy. Some even have sections that I find flat out unpleasant to listen to.
When I first started I was given a few recommendations and picked up a few tunes from local sessions that caught my attention. Now however, I find myself relying on pot luck as to whether the tune I look up on here is going to be catchy or run of the mill.
So…over to you…
If there’s one thing I’ve picked up from this site it’s that there are a lot of people with vast knowledge and experience in this field so I’d be delighted if you could share that knowledge. I know there are plenty of discussions of ‘which tunes should I learn’ but I am not necessarily looking for easy tunes, slow tunes, well known tunes etc - I am looking for tunes that are memorable, that have a catchy melody or hook that will grab a listener’s attention.
I do not mind in the slightest if they are frowned upon in some circles, corny, overplayed or fit the description of being ‘daggy’ - if you consider them to be catchy tunes please pass on your suggestion.
Thanks in advance.
