Beer-Drinking Polka – Flaco Jimenez

This polka is from the album Flaco & Max: Legends & Legacies on Smithsonian Folkways.
Flaco calls it Beer-Drinking Polka because he doesn't recall the original title. 
I created the tab as best as I could from listening to the song played slowly
(there's some trills or bits I couldn't pick up, so I just doubled the notes).

Let me know if there are any mistakes or amendments required.
The keying pattern can be changed to suit your own style of playing.
I would recommend listening to the song to get the timing correct
(it is available as a free download from the Smithsonian Folkways website).

Notes:
    Lower case key (for example c7) is a short / grace note used to make a hammer-on sound.
    t        =    next to the keys means to TRILL those notes (if possible).
    ~        =    hold the keys – slightly longer note.

I have changed the keying pattern that, I think, is easier to play:

Notes:
    Lower case key (for example c7) is a short / grace note used to make a hammer-on sound.
    t        =    next to the keys means to TRILL those notes (if possible).
    ~        =    hold the keys – slightly longer note.
