Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

Somewhat jazzed or bluegrassed up version of Sir Syds - and hence annoys traditional purists. (I also play a more melodic version to appease those conservative folks). Sydney Smith was an English admiral who defeated Napoleon at the siege of Acre and in doing so may have changed the course of the Napoleonic wars. Sir Sydney's fame was short lived as his exploits we're soon overshadowed by those of Nelson. Quick and dirty recording (warts, errors and all) using microphone part of cheap PC headset and Audacity. New latop and new OS so had to mess about to get it working at all acceptably :-( Not really Bluegrass **or** old time style, but there isn't a category called "bluehammer" or "individual" to describe my self developed picking style..

Very good - could this be the start of a new genre; Northumbrian-grass?
