Do I add an embellishment here or there? Often. Do I try to vary the speed/style of playing for different verses? Yes. But just occasionally, for some of the simple songs, I find that the way I always did it seems just about right. That was the case for one today. Surprisingly, I found I had not put this one on youtube before, so I did it there and then. In case you want to know what sons it was, it is here:
