Clawhammer Banjo 2 with Todd Childers

With roots in Africa and the American South, clawhammer banjo combines rhythm and melody to create a sound perfect for the back porch or playing in a string band. This class is intended for those students who have reached the point in their banjo journey where they wish to build on their foundational skills. This course will help students expand their skills, learn new tunes, and explore additional tunings. Tunes will be taught by ear in a call-and-response fashion, with videos provided for practice at home. Tablature will not be used.

New or improved skills may include:

  • Hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides
  • Open-string pull-offs
  • Drop thumb
  • Using a capo to play in A, Am and D

New tunings may include:

  • Double C (gCGCD)
  • Double D (aDADE)
  • G modal (gDGCD)
  • A modal (aEADE)
