This is a classic song written by Turner Layton in 1918 and first recorded by Marion Harris in that year. I used to play this in the key of F in my jazz band days, but the melody falls easier under the fingers in C - which is what it's played in in this video.

Magical Will, one of my favourites yet.  You make it look so effortless. 

You also have the most expressive eyebrows I have ever seen.  You can almost watch your videos with the sound down and just watch the eyebrows and understand exactly what the music sounds like!!!

Great. I've always liked that song. Thumbs Carllile used to do that. It may be on one the the CD's I sent you. !918 huh? Wow. I would have guessed like 30's. Is that song a little ahead of it's time?
I usually think of at least 10 years later with that feel and beautiful melody but I'm no historian. As Ben says looks effortless and you do a great job but that melody just feels like a gentle breeze as well.
 Hey Will. Has retirement day come yet?

Hey Will. Has retirement day come yet?

Nearly - I have 5 working days left (leave to take as well), and my last working day is 21st August...
