Beginning Clawhammer Banjo
- Old Time
- School of Music class
*THIS IS AN ONLINE CLASS*
Clawhammer (also known as frailing) style of playing banjo is the descendant of the earliest banjo technique. It’s the easiest banjo style to learn and the most fun to play. You will learn tuning, basic chords and the all-important right and left-hand techniques that clawhammer is based on. It’s an excellent introduction to the five string banjo and opens the door to playing traditional fiddle tunes, accompanying singers, and to many other musical genres. Be sure to bring a 5 String Banjo, Capo, Digital Tuner, and a notebook. A cell phone with a video capability would be very useful. Handouts will be provided.
