My gosh, John! A fantastic undertaking. What is your source? You must have all the parts here. In O'Neil's book The Fox Chase is the very last of the 1,850 tunes and takes up a whole page of notation. I read that Paddy Malone of the Chieftains played a unique and lively interpretation of the tune he called The Foxhunt, which is the version I used to listen to all the time. You've captured it well on banjo. Thanks for such a treat!

Thanks for the likes and comments! Janet, I binge-listened to the dozens of version of Foxhunters Reel on line. I also used the sheet music from the session. My favorite version is by Frankie Gavin on YouTube.
