Want to play clawhammer banjo? David gets you started in the simplest way with an open G chord and the loping "bum-diddy" rhythm that's at the heart of this style. He then teaches the basic chord shapes and melody notes to six tunes: "Bile Them Cabbage Down," "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," "Coming Round the Mountain," "Old Joe Clark," "Liza Jane" and "Cluck Old Hen." Once you've learned the easy versions David brings in the elements that give that distinctive mountain sound: hammers, pulls, slides, double-thumbing, more. This lesson takes your from total beginner to full-on intermediate. Tab included as PDF file on the disc.
