Back in Tucson; Patreaon Update

Tuesday, September 19, 2023

Hi All!

Been an absent slug lately BUT I have been updating my Patreon site with guitar back up tracks for the Scratch books and more Tunetorials available here for you to work on tunes.

I plan on doing videos finally for all of the Clawhammer Banjo From Scratch book in the near future as well as getting the rest of my Tunetorials up for you to learn.

Only $5 per month for full site access! I do hope to see you there.

Otherwise, summer in Tucson is going out hot and heave. The 110's seem to be gone but it pushes high 90's most days. Nights, however are now in the 60's making for good biking weather in the am. PM me if you want to meet up!

Finally, I am just now starting to plan my trip east start late next spring. Let me know if you would like to host a house concert and/or workshop or two on route. Maybe even a private session or two too! Airstream in tow!

Play Nice,
Dan "Clawdan" Levenson
