    That's very nice! A suggestion to sound more Italian is to add even more tremolo on long notes.
    Did you get this from Sheri's collection?

    I learned this tune from Carlo Aonzo's Book. I will try to attach image. It is a Mel Bay publication and the CD included is fantastic. You get to hear Carlo play!!!

    Cesare Pezzolo was one of six brothers--all accordionists--who lived in and around San Francisco--. I played this as a kid and still do. It's usually requested by very old accordionists. I've attached my transcription. I think this fellow is adlibbing parts of it or playing it from a faulty memory. Not meant as a criticism but I would need to see what Carlo transcribed.
