Howdy, been working on Doc watson’s country blues. Does anyone have or know of an accurate TAB? So far it seems its not exactly clawhammer and the tunings ECFGC in 451hz. how the heck do you play this darn thing? its been a troubling my mind lol and is that even the right tuning?
Doc Watson played with a two-finger index style which gives the same rhythm as clawhammer and with a more frequent use of the fifth string. Then the f#CGAD tuning is not a good solution, but perhaps aCGAD would work. But I think Doc Watson played in Double C tuning gCGCD (youtube.com/watch?v=ZyiJvQuxEW4)
