Can anybody point to a competent video of this song being done?

There's a guy on Youtube, Alan Chan, who goes through all of these songs exactly as written, mechanically.

But his videos are not helping at all. This is the most difficult piece in the book and calls for special care in several areas:

1. the grace notes are played uniquely
2. all the eighth note combinations must be long-short

None of the people who usually post the Alfred's songs (e.g. "Darkboy") have ever posted this one.

I think that's because it's too hard. I myself can play it as written just fine, but not with the special instructions (e.g., "long-short").

Can anybody help? Such as by pointing to a video of somebody playing this the way it was meant to be played?

Maybe you could ask one of our nice members here in the ABF or over in the Teachers or the Pianists to pretty please post one for you.

Good luck!
