Hmmm - your playing, as usual, is fine.

But I can't say I like the "minor" part much.

As a native of Arkansas I probably take this tune too seriously - but it's nothing if it's not "happy" so I don't think it wants its 3rd flattened.

On the other hand, I don't mind flattening the 3rd's on Turkey in the Straw whenever I feel like it - so I guess my views about this are just provincial... ;-)

I like both the major rendition, and the minor rendition actually adds to the presentation.  But, I am a Texan living in Arkansas, not an Arkansas native.    

I give both presentations a "thumbs up".

I like the minor stuff because that is something new to my ears.
