Celebrated folk music tutor Ken Perlman introduces this DVD that explores the heritage and techniques of the Clawhammer Banjo tradition. Beginning with a look at the brush-thumb technique, Perlman uses his expert knowledge and experience to guide you through:
- Drop thumbing
- Double thumbing
- Drop thumb anticipation
- Single-string brush-thumbing
- Chords in double 'C' tuning.
During the course of the tutorial, all lessons are illustrated with authentic examples of traditional folk songs and Clawhammer favourites, including The Meeting Of The Waters and Little Billy Wilson. By the end of the disc you will not only be fluent in a host of Clawhammer techniques, but also have a repertoire of songs through which to master your Banjo chops, all courtesy of one of the most acclaimed players of the style.
