Clawhammer banjo

I've been playing clawhammer banjo since 1990. In that time, I've made about 20 albums and toured with the likes of Arnie Naiman, Erynn Marshall, Ivan Rosenberg, The Foggy Hogtown Boys, and most recently The Lonesome Ace Stringband. My teaching style tends to lean more towards teaching concepts than teaching tunes (although tunes are often used as examples). I aim to have the students leave with an overview of the subject, and a plan for how to apply it to their own music. I provide a written overview of the subject that includes tablature.
