Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
This is the only recording I can recall from my brief days as a clawhammer picker. This is from the album produced for the Seventh Annual Banjo Contest, held in Craftsbury Common, Vermont, in 1974. I didn't win the contest, but at least I made it onto the album. I think this was basically Art Rosenbaum's setting from his Oak publication.
