This tune is also commonly found under the name Fourteen Days in Georgia. Kessinger called it Sixteen, and played it extremely well. The A part is crooked, featuring six extra beats (four of them at the end of the first line, and the other two at the end of the third line). There are some potentially difficult double-stops in the B part. Kessinger also used a good bit of vibrato, which is denoted in the transcription by wavy lines to the left of notes to be played vibrato.
