Well you obviously haven't forgotten it all in spite of the long break since you last played. Nice, I was getting into that. I think the fill-ins worked, at first I thought they would be too bluesy but in fact it works fine. I don't know about the Musictech instruments but is there any way to make the main melody more dominant than the fill-ins? Anyway I hope it's going well.

The MusicTech does have Dynamix & other effects options. I'm trying to find a comprehensive users manual to learn how to use all its features.

I think Mat meant nothing more complex than pulling/pushing a touch harder at the melody and less on the fill-ins to make them more subtle? I know your accordion has dynamic volume with bellows control, you could see it in action when you played. :)

I found the song good, but there were moments where there was a touch too much fill for want of a little more meat.. but just a little, because there was a time or two that the melody got lost for a second, but then suddenly came back. One or two less or shorter fills would have suited me better. Still, well done. :)

I liked that Brian! I will say it was unique. Since I've played that tune for 30 years now I found myself waiting for the fill-ins since I found them quite interesting and musically fun. Thanks for recording and submitting it!

I'm glad it looked like I was using the bellow dynamix, but actually I wasn't. I just opened the air release valve to max so I can move the bellows. So bellow movement is asthetic only.

Thanks for the tips, I appreciate them all.

Nice...as someone else quoted 'unique'...always a good thing
I'll hav a fondle with these ideas myself later..thanks...funny I normally attempt to embellish the middle 8 and let the rest of tune stand alone with perhaps a few horn stabs here an there
