Yay! Sandy's a great player, and still using the little 48 bass that he learnt on - though I don't doubt that it's gone through a few changes in its time. But shows what can be done on such a small box! He's one special musician.

Agreed - they never really work do they? But the lad's a good player, and it'd be nice to hear him play that tune without hamming it up on the left hand,

I think Graeme plays his midi setup very well, in fact he's a quite brilliant player, but to my ear there's always a false, almost hollow or empty sound that a midified piano bass gives out. I think it's a lot to do with the current standard of technology and is why I believe Graeme's moving onto the Limex system (which I'm looking forward to hearing and trying for myself very soon).
I do believe that a well positioned microphone on a standard accordion bass end is a much more satisfactory sound - it's a purely personal opinion - so that people can hear the whole accordion being played.

A great tune and goes so well with many other greats. I can't get near it on the box but an making headway with it on the moothie.
