CLAWHAMMER CHRISTMAS with David Brooks

Want to be ready to play holiday tunes on your banjo this year? This course will teach you to play 8-10 Christmas carols in clawhammer style. Most will be in open-G tuning, and we may look at a couple of songs in double-C tuning, if there is interest.

Possible tunes include:

  • Hark, The Herald Angels Sing
  • Jingle Bells
  • Come All Ye Faithful
  • Silent Night
  • The First Noel
  • We Three Kings
  • Away in a Manger
  • Coventry Carol
  • Deck the Halls
  • We Wish You a Merry Christmas
Tab will be provided along with step-by-step instruction.


Who Should Attend:
This course is best suited for both experienced beginners and intermediate students. Intermediate arrangements may be provided for some tunes for players comfortable with drop thumb and some syncopation. Students should have a basic right-hand clawhammer stroke and the ability to change chords easily in Open G tuning.


Open to everyone ages, 11 and up.
