CLUCKIN' HEN . American, Reel. A Major. AEac# tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'AA'CC'BB'. Howe Teague's Missouri version is categorized as a 'breakdown' but is played at a slower tempo. Teague and Earl Collin's (Oklahoma) versions are perhaps not cognate, but are grouped together because of the shared fiddle tuning, and some general similarities.
