Notes: Buck’s Run is a delightful mandolin tune composed by Buck White. To me, it conjures the sound of baying hounds chasing a deer. It is also an excellent tune for the banjo and has been recorded by several artists: Buck White of course, with banjo by Jack Hicks; Larry Cordle, with banjo by Dave Talbot from Ontari-ari-ari-o; and Jeff White, with banjo by Charlie Cushman. My version of Buck’s Run includes influences from each of these banjo pickers, as well as a wonderful fiddle break by Kenny Baker (ah, Kenny Baker …). It is played in the key of A.

Nice arrangement Michael. I tabbed Jack Hicks' version years ago but never put it into Tabledit; I don't think Tabledit was even around back then. A future project maybe...Jack

It would be fun to compare the tabs, Jack. I did not try to capture Hicks’s version note-for-note, but I did borrow a couple of his ideas, along with some influences from Dave Talbot’s and Charlie Cushman’s playing. If you listen hard you can even hear a bit of Kenny Baker. Michael

Ok, I'll let you know when I put Jack's version into Tabledit. Jack came up with a really fun arrangement which in those days was really something...J
