I was captivated by Brian Peter's amazing version of this Joplin tune and determined to learn it.

 

I'm still having problems smoothing out some of the choppy spots - I'm guessing a few more than my 30 buttons would really help on this piece to even out difficult passages - and the D part continues to give me heartburn.  But it's been a total hoot working it out from his recording.

 

Now to add back in some of the fiddley bits I omitted.

 

Constructive suggestions more than welcome.

Great job, Jim!  When I get back from holiday I'll try to work out which of my extra 9 buttons I use in that tune.

I bet the extra buttons are pretty important in the down chromatic run in the D part....on a 30 button box, no alternate fingerings to smooth that out!
