Hm. I tried to play it: https://youtu.be/8nvVlLZzWgM  ???

Not impressed. The tune is nice (and can sound enchanting on the melodeon as was demonstrated in this thread). But I'm surprised how wishy-washy my playing came out this time.  :o

I should definitely have spent more time with the tune. But, alas!, the month’s end is near.

True to the composers roots, Norwegian 6/8 shades towards 2/4 in that the dance steps associated with the tunes are classified as marches or "walking" tunes.  Besides the composers performance with diatonic box, Swedish duo HezeliusHedin offer up another nice version of the tune played on nyckelharpa and cittern:

Currently enjoying playing the tune indoors while the daytime temperature outside is -21 Fahrenheit with a 30 mph wind and a wind-chill factor of 50 below...

I've just discovered an interesting version of the tune on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLj1GiuPZH0
The Lounge Bar starts around 1:58.
Not with a melodeon but with Nyckelharpa and Cittern. Very soothing to listen to.

I can confirm that this is the case.

Thoon, a lovely rendition, and a great sounding box!

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

Thanks Q. But I was told that I forget C# to D in the « B » part and it is right! I do not play also the right « C » part! I will try to listen more carefully next time!

Well, I never noticed, I was enjoying your playing and the sound of that box.

Glad to hear you're back on your feet. Don't worry though, it's folk music, variations are part of the fun :)

I'm playing all the wrong notes but not necessarily in the wrong order.

Magical, lovely to hear, pleased you are recovered from the winter miseries. I heard no missed notes in your playing but then again when I sit at the feet of a master . . .

I feel that this song sounds extremely good on a G/C - such a soft and mellow tone you produced. Not much to suggest here in terms of improvements as I think it's already pretty near to perfect.

Thanks for your comment Fred.
Thoon, I think your version is great (only a little fast for my preference) but I really like your playing and also the bass line on your video.  Thank you.
I have really enjoyed listening to all the videos of this tune.
