First Baby Steps

Posted by Sassafrassa on Monday, May 21, 2007

I ordered Dan Levenson's Clawhammer for the Claw-less last week, and am waiting "patiently" (sense the sarcasm there...) for the book to arrive.  I'm taking the advice that I am seeing in the threads, and am going to attempt only one book at a time....difficult for me, cause I tend to jump in feet first, and try to get as much information as possible.   But I shall restrain myself.

I also have been watching Old Woodchuck's beginning Rocket Science videos on You-Tube, and have been practicing my finger/thumb strokes till I am driving myself crazy ;) building muscle memory.  Thank you for posting those videos, Tony.  They truly are helpful.

If anybody knows of any good Old-Time teachers in the Greensboro, NC area, I would greatly appreciate a heads-up.  I haven't found anyone yet, and I'm thinking that a teacher would be very helpful in preventing bad habits from forming.  Teaching yourself can be very rewarding, but it's hard to correct yourself if you don't know what you are doing!!
