A terrific lesson specifically devised for Banjo players that wish to sing and accompany themselves in the clawhammer style, featuring Grammy-winning performer Cathy Fink.
Starting with easy songs, Cathy shows how to find the right key for your voice, use the capo, play a simple accompaniment and pick out scales and melody notes within the chords. You'll discover how to embellish your tunes with slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs and other important tricks that will add drive and complexity to your performances.
Cathy also introduces some more advanced techniques and different tunings, including double thumbing, old-time modal sounds, waltz time, and a superb showcase rendition of Oh! Susanna that combines them all!
