    Interesting tuning ! Thing is he can play virtually anything extremely well, I love Show of Hands and I have been lucky to see them numerous times at our locale folk club over the last 30 years.

    Thanks for sharing that. This is the first time I have heard of him. Great sounding tenor interesting tuning. I some times fingerpick using DGDA tuning.

    Show of hands have dozens of videos they are very well known in the U.K. Phil Beer, the guy with the beard, often swaps instruments during their performances and he also does a great one man show.

    surely... it's Bouzouki tuning - as if capo'd at fifth. String choices aside.
    i too play GDAD on my tenor, but capo to have a go at

    or GDGD

    he and I are very similar - vocal range i mean, as i do gravitate to capo at fifth, but the reason I do GDAD is so that I can capo at Bb

    Also I fingerpick, so he's not met me... well he has, but i didn't play mandolin even back then...

    incidentally, Cousin Jack is pretty much same chords as Boys of Summer, so it makes an easy dovetail during a song

    from my memory CJ is

    Intro

    4420
    0020
    2200
    0020

    verse
    4420
    0020
    2200
    7700
    2200

    4420
    6400
    0020
    2200

    Chorus (which is where boys of summer may rear its head in your head!)
    7700
    2200
    4420
    0020
    2200
    7700
    2200
    0020
    2200

    oh and follow me down bit
    2200
    0020
    4420

    etc

    never quite sure of bridge - there's a vid of what PB does on the mando somewheres... not that i couldn't work it out, i vamp the intro but i have the attention span of a gnat for learning others' tunes.
