Hi all - here's my take on this, played on a G/C Van der Aa, so we're in C.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIXzscEbeFM

I do think those of us who play by ear have an unfair advantage here - the changes in time signature are something that I didn't really notice when learning the tune to be honest - it sounds like a slow 2/4 march to me, albeit with an irregular bar count.

Now I've had a chance to listen to the other versions (I try not to before I record), nice jobs so far people! Saul, I do hear a lot of Andy's technique in your playing - you have the bellows shake done very nicely that is such a characteristic part of what he does - really good job.

Cheers,

Clive

Here's mine. I decided to keep it in the original key.

Lovely. The advantage of a CF box?

Is not the space between Heaven and Earth like a bellows?
It is empty, but lacks nothing.

Yes - nice playing. C/F boxes sound lovely and mellow. I'm generally of the opinion that it's a shame to convert a nice vintage C/F box into D/G when there are plenty of modern D/G boxes available.
