The old hen (cluck old hen) Jim Mills

When I heard Jim Mills playing this I loved his version so much I thought, I gotta learn that. Found a little tutorial that said it was the Jim Mills version, thought… Mm… Still don’t sound like his. So slowed his version right down so I could try and pick out what he was playing.
Not playing it up to speed yet as I can’t quite get those tricky little riffs at the end.
I also cocked it up a bit at the end, but I’m working on it. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
So here it is so far (shortened version) warts and all just recorded on my phone. Using my other old (cheap) Ashbury banjo.


Love it!

Thanks Ben. Not quite there yet, still trying to get it all together but I will keep practising. :+1:
