Years ago, while my daughter – now 10 – was still a toddler, I was sitting in her room noodling around on a mandolin. It was just before her bedtime, and I was letting her play around in her toy kitchen for a bit before commencing with our bedtime routine.
Her pink kitchen, that is.
Naturally, her being a girl and all, we’d chosen toy appliances that were pink. Many an imaginary muffin, cupcake, and hot dog topped with sprinkles were brought to life in that kitchen, of which I would imaginarily devour with gusto.
That evening, with mandolin in my hand, I decided to compose some background music to her kitchen adventures.
With the tune completed, all that was left was to give it an appropriate name.
As you know, “Kitchen Girl” was already taken. So “Pink Kitchen Girl” was born.
So, for the first time in the Clawhammer Tune of the Week series, I have an original composition for you. May visions of the most delicious imaginary muffins, cupcakes, and hot dogs with sprinkles fill your mind as the notes spring from your banjo.

The notes in parentheses are “skip notes”, meaning they aren’t sounded by the picking finger (for a full tutorial on these, go here). And for more on reading tabs in general, check out my complete guide on reading banjo tabs.
