Well played James (:)

Thanks also to you and Ethan for playing this for me in the Fleece at the weekend when I asked :)

After three weeks of dreaded lurgi and virtually no playing ( strange how picking up the box can bring on a horrendous coughing fit) I'm now completely addicted to this tune and can't get it out of my head. Each version I hear makes me think of different variations, fingering and chord patterns - so many of Andy's tunes are wonderful to learn from.
So pleased it's tune of the month.
As for Alexandra's book - I just hope the copy I ordered turns up !

Ok, here goes, my first big grown up TOTM....a few apologies in advance for:

a) The distracted look - I was in the middle of cooking a roast dinner and the Yorkshires needed to go in the oven
b) The echoey sound, I've just decorated and there are no curtains so it sounds a bit weird
c) The fact you can't see the bass end most of the time, this is because I had to balance my phone on a pear as it was the only thing to hand, but I am also blaming the chronic shortage of pull options in this tune (!)

Any good points are undoubtedly due to the wonderful tutelage of Steve Freereeder.  All mistakes (and there are a few) are entirely my own!

No need for them. It sounds quite nice. (:)

Well done Vicky!Good playing. Not my favourite tune I have to admit, but you play it with feeling and smoothness.

Bravo. And doing the cooking and decorating, too. Makes me feel underskilled across many areas. I need a shed. Well played.

I say, that's really nicely done.

Here's my effort - never played this before, and it's from memory, so having listened to a few others I appear to missing a little subtlety! Never mind, here we are in C on a G/C/# Van der Aa....

Well done Vicky! No self-apologies needed, that was really nicely played!

Thank you, but you've put in all the hard work and practise. I'm pleased for you.  (:)

Thanks to all who commented on my version, I really appreciate you taking the time to respond. It's a very nerve wracking thing to put yourself up in front of your peers for scrutiny and it's a great testament to this forum and all the people who post that it remains a safe, supportive environment to encourage and advise relative newbies like me. If only the rest of the world was like melnet. Well....er.....maybe ;)  :|||:

Time up folks - on to the next tune! Thanks to Andy for his kind permission to let us use it; much appreciated! As usual, any late contributions, just stick them on the end of this thread...

Grrr, another late reply by me >:( It's becoming a trademark...

Here it is: https://youtu.be/HSd3Owcr80w

I enjoyed a lot to learn this tune, it was very difficult to capture it in my head at first, and then it was also difficult to understand the right way to play it, buttons and bass. So thanks a lot to the ones who published videos and provided the music sheets!

I don't like the passage from A to B part, but now it's too late to change (:)

Very nice indeed! I think your A to B music changes are fine. 
It's great to see a Pokerwork (a) being played in upper octave, which this tune ideally requires for the A music, and (b) being played so sensitively. It just goes to show that a Pokerwork can do 'subtle'.  (:)
