Notes: SMT is a lovely tune employing Keith/Scruggs tuners. Walter Hensley wrote it and recorded it as Stoney Mountain Twist and Walt's Breakdown, and more recently J. D. Crowe recorded it as Stony (sic) Mountain Twist. The tab I have posted is more or less my own arrangement, not faithful to either Hensley's or Crowe's. For Part C, where you crank up your Keith tuners (twisters), I have tabbed it to show the melody notes without tuners, but I added the protocol for using Keith tuners above the tab. So you can still play it if you do not have Keith tuners, although it sounds much better with the tuners. (It was a real bear to get the timing accurate on Part C, by the way).

Jack, This tune was really worth the effort. It is simple, but, I suspect, a crowd pleaser. Michael
