  1. I Clawhammer differently, more simply, than you do, but I have your Clawhammer book now, so I’ll give your way a try. I really like the book, and, though I’m making progress with it, I’m an old guy with memorizing problems that slow me down. Anyway, I have two of your books and really enjoy them.

  2. Thanks for the good explanation on how to play clawhammer. I have seen many videos but this is the first one that makes sense on how to do it. Heck I might even give it a try. 🙂
    PS: I found this website via Banjo Hangout

  3. At almost 70 years old, I am learning the claw hammer banjo. Your video helped fill in some important info on thumb position that other videos don’t completely show. I find the claw hammer counter intuitive to playing guitar. Banjo goes towards the body and guitar goes the other way, especially with the thumb. I have only been trying for three days so I am still going slow. If I try to go fast, I get out of sync and fall back into strumming like guitar. Thanks for the added help.

  4. Eventually….I shall make it.

    1. Me too!
