In 2002 multi-instrumentalist Neil Davey, key proponent of Cornish music from Bucca in the 70s through to current band Dalla, via many of the world's top festival stages, compiled 68 of his favourite Cornish tunes and published them together with 2 CDs.
Each tune is played once slowly and then a few times more quickly with embellishments and improvisation so it's not only essential for the tune-learner but very pleasant to listen to as well. Neil's advice to users of the book is based on the idea that "if you love the music you play, it shows and others will enjoy it too. To get to love your music I think you need to make it your own, by finding your own way of playing it which brings it alive for you on your particular instrument. This results from experimenting with the tunes, improvising with the raw materials until their secrets are revealed to you. I call this process unlocking a tune."
The book was long-awaited as musicians throughout Cornwall and beyond had been anxious for the opportunity to learn the tunes. The Cornish music revival of the last 30 years has seen very few resource materials actually published and the eagerly-anticipated Fooch! has been variously described as "A revolution", "Bordering on genius!" and "Great value!"
