also can’t get enough of this b section

Heard it played fast on piano accordian in Lerwick, absolutely fell in love with the tune. I agree. The dips in the B part are brilliant

I prefer the A section.

New Hands, X:2

Aidan Burke does a monster version of this, playing around with the A part a lot. This version captures the variations, although he does extend it further with some more repeats.
