BUCK HORD. AKA - "Buck Hoard." Old-Time. USA, Kentucky. A Major. AEae tuning (fiddle). ABA'AB'B. The tune is associated with fiddler Alva Greene. Jeff Titon (2001) finds the tune related to the better-known "Rye Straw." The curious title, suggest John Harrod and Mark Wilson, is perhaps derived from a mishearing of the title "Buck Horn," the name of a creek in Breathitt County, Ky.
