Oh don't! :o

As an update, that tune (The Primrose Polka) has been going through my head, on and off, ever since. I've gone back to the Jimmy Shand version which I have to say is brilliant. I didn't quite get all of the notes right in what first got going in my head. It's well worth persevering and getting the notes as Jimmy Shand plays them. It's a gorgeous tune. :)

Naturally, when I went to lend an ear, Ben, the video in your link was unavailable. So, I found this recording of Mr. Shand provided by Parlophone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95_3SU1Dv84
Close enough?

That's the one. I think it's absolutely fantastic. :)
