Another well known tune but not so much on this side of the pond. There's a lovely version of it on Transatlantic Sessions with Jay Ungar, Ally Bain, Danny Thompson et al. I first heard at Roger and Patsy Young's house it as a banjo piece played beautifully by Adam Hurt.

Maybe a bit corny but I've liked Cluck Old Hen since I first heard it when Bert Jansch recorded a guitar vesion in the 1970s.

Recorded on my 'I Phone'. I think that this tune to a popular sea song works quite well as jig.

I posted 2 tabs for this last week and I've tried to include most of the same musical ideas in this MP3. The tune is a hornpipe from West Sussex.

I have tried Squirrel Hunters in a few different tunings and have struggled with understanding the chord structure. There is some discussion of this in Tune of The Week archive so it seems that I’m not alone. There don’t seem to be many clawhammer versions of the tune on the net but Ike Lajoie’s version in the BH archive is terrific. I settled on Sandy River Belle tuning but up a tone as I play a short scale ladies’ banjo. It does fall quite easily to the fingers. I have also posted a basic tab.
