    That was awesome. Especially through ear buds!

    Ha! I came because I mis-read title as "The Stranglers", whose guitarist Hugh Cornwell also played tele, and stayed for the cool honky tonk! Or is there a more accurate description for that music?

    I wish they'd re release the instrumental stuff.

    Thanks for sharing, this made me smile.

    If you like this, you'll also like Hammin' It Up, another instrumental which opened Merle's live shows for many years.

    Great tune.... I saw Merle about 15 years ago and he was still opening with it at that time.
    That was one of the first songs I learned when I started playing steel guitar.

    Other favorite of mine from the Strangers are "Poppin' Corn", "A Hop and a Skip" and "Whooper Snooper". Each song was a master class on guitar.
