    Here are some videos.

    and here's one from our long-time member, Manfred, from the tune's first run here in the Song a Week Social Group!

    Oh, look, and here's mine from back then! I still have the same mandolin, AND the same polka dotted jammies!!!

    I did a new version of this tune last year, posted in the old thread. Here it is again -- arrangement by Evelyn (Harper):

    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin
    1925 Zimmermann waldzither
    Ozark tenor guitar
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello

    Great arrangement by Harper and well played Martin.
    Here is my effort.

    Nice tune and really good submissions in the last five years. I can’t serve with a whole chamber orchestra like Martin so I tried to play the same melody with three instruments:
    The old Lion Head - left channel
    Pro Musica bouzouki – middle
    Eastman 815v – right channel
    Got the bouzouki as a birthday present five years ago but wasn’t able to handle the long neck.
    I wondered that I should post the first video this week but just now I listen to your submission, Duncan.

    here's my go. Tried to get to it before it left page 1 - ha!

    Take one, direct to MacBook, my A3, Thomastik stark, Large Jazz 40 BC. Fun tune to play!
