People round my parts call it slappin' banjo, or thumbin' (a reference to teh drop thumb..this is sam and kirk mcghee territory, they differentiate between frailin and dropthumbing..ie clawhammer.....
if i dont play everyday, i dont feel ive had a day, and most days i try to play some before and after work. I learn by playing and listening both as much as i can. I love the clawhammer tradition, the tunes, and old timey music, as well as early american blues music....really just early american music..
I am thrilled to find a place like this where so many people can get together and waste time together (PHish reference); So let's eat when we're hungry, drink when we're dry, and live like we wish we could.
I m 33 and just left my hobby farm to move back home to whites creek, tn. I like Faulkner, chickens, dogs, OP tomatoes, and pickin', amongst other things.
