That sure is nice, great tone and phrasing. When that cluck starts is real drives as well.
One my favourite tunes, I also have a couple of versions on my page...

Absolutely clucking GREAT!

Ever notice the similarity between the the first line of "Cluck Old Hen", and the opening line of Jimi Hendrix's "Foxey Lady" ?

Bomp, Bomp, Ba-a-ah, da, Bomp, Bomp, Ba-a-ah ....

You just need to run your banjo through a distortion box... ;-)
