7 months later and I've finally gotten around to learning this tune a bit better. Still got a lot of embellishments to figure out and there's a glaring mistake in the last run through, but pretty pleased to finally be able to play it reasonably!

Thanks Mike! It's a really relaxing tune to play, now that I know how to play it :D

This was TOTM about 4 months after I first picked up a melodeon and I looked on in awe at the wonderful versions.  3 1/2 years later I thought it was about time I had a go.  Thanks as always to the marvellous Mel Biggs for her tuition and encouragement:

Thank you  (:)  Certainly a tricky one, but I've really enjoyed the challenge.

Nicely done. I think it's time this tune had another turn as TOTM
