Okay I'm a slow learner. It was those damned arpeggios; still a hiccup on the last one but I think this is as good as I'm going to get. I found this tune challenging to learn but then that's just what TOTM should be IMHO.

Nice pulse in the bellows.

Grateful thanks to both for your kind comments.
Pulse in the bellows - heart in the mouth - would I get through it?!

I'm enjoying this month's totm. It's not a tune I would have tried and I don't have the low notes on my box anyway.
I can appreciate the sound and the control on the one row (one of my favourites) and the smoothness of the big Italian boxes. There are certainly no disappointments.
One day I'll post my own contribution, but the only way I can record is on my phone, and have to confess it makes my pokerwork sound dreadful.
It's gratifying to hear some of the most impressive recordings took so many takes. It gives me hope.
Righto. A year down the line and I've had the Pariselle box for 11months or so and thanks to a bit of information from Saul Bailey I've had it set up the way that works for me for a month or two.
I honestly didn't ever think I'd be attempting this but Keith on fiddle said he liked the tune and handed me the music book.
I was hoping to do this on the 12 bass Vic so it would be in Gmin but the air button (which I haven't changed yet) drove my thumb into spasm.
So here it is in Amin. I don't have options for stops on the bass side, so it's all in, all the time.
