Chapman recorded this charming acoustic guitar instrumental for his 1973 album Millstone Grit
; it was instantly popular with neophytes and adepts alike, and thirty years and more on remains one of his most endearing pieces.
Running to 3 minutes 33 seconds, it uses the open D tuning, and as well as bottle necking, he plays on the harmonics. Although this polka like tune may be slightly reminiscent of a dancing skeleton, it is actually about his dog!
