Wild Hog in The Woods

Key of D – aDADE

In this, tunetorial number 47, Dan "Clawdan" Levenson teaches Wild Hog in The Woods.

There are several tunes with this name and quite different from one another. This one is the one referred to as the “modal” one and is related to the version called “Old Bangum” or “Bangum and the Boar”. Some of the versions Dan has of this one are from The Possum Trot Stringband, The Albemarle Ramblers, Reed Island Rounders and The Kimble Family. One good recent version of “Bangum” is the one by Curt Bouterse on his latest release “Wooden Nickel”. There is another acapella version by Dee Hicks form the Music of the Cumber land Plateau as well, but that one, while related, is a bit farther away from this actual melody.

While this one has the modal sound, it is not played in “modal” tuning. That said, Dan plays it out of standard double D tuning.

This version of Wild Hog is tabbed out in Dan's book Old Time Favorites for Clawhammer Banjo (MB 30224).

Price: $6.00
