Let’s go crawdad hunting!
This week’s song, Crawdad Hole, with its appeal to ears of all ages, is always a crowd favorite. It’s also a great song to tackle if you’re just getting started playing and singing – just 16 bars long, perfectly suited to standard G tuning with a minimum of fretting hand maneuvering needed.
Plus, learn this one and you’ll get a bonus song, as “Froggy Went A Courtin'” uses the exact same melody. It’s a 2-for-1!

Notes on the Tab
In the tab above, you’ll note I’ve tabbed out both a “lead break” (something to play in between verses) and the “vocal backup” (what I play while I’m singing).
Notes in parentheses are “skip” notes – to learn more about skips and syncopated skips, check out my video lesson on the subject.
