New instrumental, uses 16 hammer-ons in the A part, hence the name. The ending is completely over the top !!!

Well the band learned this in C, so I came up with this melodic break out of standard G tuning.

From a recent jam session. The guitarist,Robin McKidd, started playing sock rhythm in the Shetland style developed by Peerie Willie Johnson, and it worked really well, I thought.

Inspired by O.D.'s version, thought I'd upload this one I recorded in 2002 on analog 8-track tape. Playing all the instruments myself, including twin fiddles. Mixture of melodic and Scruggs, with an up-the-neck second banjo break.

My band's version of this tune...at the time of recording I'd never heard the original, so years later I was quite surprised at how close I came to Tom Adams' version, with added harmonics !!
