Here's my version, you just pick up the old Preciosa, switch it on, and it do play itself :-)

We're in C minor on a Bb/Eb box.

I think I found my problem with the box.  I can't find that switch...

It’s the last day(s) of May and maybe you will forgive me to supplement this thread with a non-melodeon entry of this charming tune. (For the past months I’ve concentrated on the concertina.) :|bl

Contemplating the dots I had decided that the B part has a major melody and hence forms a contrast to the A part. Furthermore I used "removed thirds" in the A part.  ;)

Hello,

So, my adventure with The Fighting Temeraire has been pretty short and, ultimately, fairly straight forward. It's a great tune to spend some time with and play with the your box expression. Plus, it turns out, my parents have had a print of the Fighting Temeraire on their wall in their dining room for probably longer than I've been around, so, I thought there was no option but to bring it in as a special guest. It's a little worse for wear, but, aren't we all? I always thought the little post thing in the bottom right looked a little bit like a dog, turning to look at you.

At any rate, my submission is here:

I opted for a shorter, fakeout-style ending rather than the 3 Bs Sandy goes for, and liked the idea of, over the course of the tune, pushing the basses almost at the expense of the melody, but, ultimately little license taken. At least I think, anyway, it's very hard to see the details of Sandy's bass end playing, and I've to date, little chance of figuring that aspect out by ear. I think I may have pilfered a C/E from McGrooger!

I'd also really like to commend Clive's submission, here, I really love the work he does with the the bass fundamentals. His bass end up set up is very effective for this tune, and I think he uses it really well.

It's been honestly very interesting to see all the different places people have taken this tune this month.

Thanks all (and thanks Gena for your kind words!); time to move to the next tune! As ever, please put late contributions (or even on time contributions, since I'm closing it a bit early) on the end of the thread - no problem.

Good, honest rendition.

The octave switch was a great move, and I like the pickup you slipped in there to reset the bellows. That's one I should add to my toolbox.
