Dan Levenson: Clawhammer Banjo From Scratch: A Guide For The Claw-less! teaches Clawhammer Banjo the way we play, not the way others say. The book really begins as though you really have NO knowledge of how to play the five string Banjo Clawhammer style.
Beginning at the very beginning, Dan presents a brief history of the 5-string Banjo then goes over the parts of the Banjo, holding the Banjo, right and left hand positions and his basic Clawhammer strum. Even the strum is broken down into the steps of the finger and thumb. You are guided through the chords, the scale and then the individual notes of each of 12 jam session favourite tunes from scratch.
Includes 2 reference CDs with all exercises, tunes (slow and up to speed), and a fiddle version of each tune.
