I am working up a set of some fingerpicking stuff suitable for happy hours and the like and remembered this song. I was pretty obsessed with the guitar part when I discovered it about ten years ago. When I searched for how to play it on the internet, all I could find was a lot of arguing about the tuning and speculation that it was done on two tracks. Maybe someone had done the legwork now and I can find out how it’s done. For likers of Richard Thompson, especially recommended:
This chiming, percussive style is all over his works but Nic Jones got into a bad car accident a couple of years after recording this, effectively ending his career. No doubt the NHS helped Nic to get back on his feet and live his life out richly and with dignity. Your equivalent American musician would be shit outta luck.

Bonus! “Cisco! Are you ready to watch the beautiful show basenjis at Westminster?”
