Clawhammer Banjo Fundamentals
Welcome to the banjo!
This class will introduce (or review) the fundamentals of clawhammer style banjo, including the basic strum, double-thumb, and drop-thumb techniques.
We’ll look at different tunings including open G, G modal, and double C (and maybe more!), as well as practice tips and drills to help improve your playing and timing, and how to jam in different contexts.
Above all, we will have fun playing and finding our way around the banjo together, and you’ll go home with a handy toolbox of banjo skills to get you through the long winter nights.
