Hi Chris,

I may be missing something here, but when I click on the link for 2018 tunes, it just takes me to the 2012-1017 tunes.
Please help.

Thanks for all your hard work on these tunes.

Dots for all the tunes that were taught in 2018 can be found at:

if anyone has more info to add (who wrote the tune, corrections in spelling or notes, etc), feel free to let me know.  It may take me awhile to make corrections/additions, but i'll do it eventually!

General Discussion / Roche Harbor 2018
« Last post by Blaine on March 06, 2018, 09:49:21 AM »
First off let me say a big "Thank You" for the hospitality everybody showed myself and Marguerite during our stay at Roche Harbor. If I didn't play many tunes, it's not because of lack of inviation or fellowship. It's simply because I have not been playing much lately! My work and other interests(camping, backpacking, fly fishing, cycling...) seem to get in the way of playing. When I booked this trip in October, I was hoping that I would come away with a renewed interest in playing and learning tunes. And I have. So thank you!

If anybody wants to connect, I am on Facebook albeit not real frequently, or PM here.

Again, thanks all...and thanks for the dots to the tunes. I use them whenever I get a little stuck so that will be helpful.
General Discussion / Ride from Roche to SeaTac early Sunday morning, March 4th
« Last post by janedoug on January 15, 2018, 07:58:14 AM »
Hi all, we have a friend riding out with us from Helena this year for the Roche week.  He has a return, one way flight around Noon Sunday on the 4th of March out of SeaTac back to Helena.  Are any of you flying out on Sunday and could fit him, a bag and a fiddle in your vehicle?  He’d definitely share gas!  We will be bringing his button box back with are going to enjoy meeting Keith!  Nice tunes and he has been joining us, plus Kerry M, for some gigs in Helena in the past year.

We are looking forward to catching up with folks, the tunes and the craic!!!   And hey, any ideas on new fodder for 10:30am tunes out there?

General Discussion / Lift from Seattle to Anacortes, Sat Mar 4?
« Last post by kerry.morse on February 22, 2017, 06:21:49 PM »
Hi Friends,
If you're traveling from Seattle to Anacortes on Saturday, Mar 4 (2017) I'd much rather carpool than take the shuttle.  Happy to pitch in for gas and ferry.

Please email me at if this might work. 

See you SOON!

General Discussion / Cottage to share
« Last post by s.moore on January 25, 2017, 09:39:37 PM »
Late in the game to grab an accommodation at Roche Harbor so I booked a cottage, 2 bedrooms & kitchen.  I'll be solo or with spouse, staying Sunday through Friday,  3/5-3/10, 5 nights.

I'd like to share lodging with a solo or couple for half the rent.  Please email to s.moore at (preferred), or 971-274-1609, lv msg or send text.
