Hot Chestnuts
 
One of my favourite ragtime guitar pieces, I have been trying to play this for some years now, from the transcription in a book by Ken Perlman. No where near Glen Jenks speed, how did he do it and still keep those syncopated notes sounding clear?

Does anyone have the vinyl album Antidote which features this track?

Sorry I can't help you with the LP, but thanks for posting this. I really like this tune. And I'm assuming this is the same Glenn Jenks who was better known as a ragtime pianist? Makes his guitar chops even more impressive!

Yes the same Glenn Jenks apparently he was dissapointed by guitar arrangements of piano rags so he composed this and I guess others on the album? based around conventional guitar chord shapes connected by runs, seems strange to me he wasn't better known as a guitarist.
