Claw dog......

Posted by tkocason on Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Well, I watched the Cumberland Highlanders show on TV and they had highlights from the Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass festival.

They had a champion Claw hammer banjo picker on there (Phillip Stienmetz) and wow I didn't know a claw could go that fast!

So, I've gone back to the drawing board, learning claw from the Murphy Method.

Murphy doesn't teach it it's Lynn Morris, but she does a good job as well.

I've got "You are My Sunshine" up to speed, and Cripple Creek going okay.

I've learned Arkansas Traveler, but only real slow. It's in open C tuning, which is a new thing as well.

All this to say, I'm no longer a Bluegrass only snob.....Claw is pretty cool too.

Oh, the Helix Jupiter #3 is made for claw...it rocks, of course, my wife says "it's too loud"!
