Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

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.
