Genre: Unknown/None Chosen / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

I learned Betsy Likens in clawhammer from Miles Krassen's book Clawhammer banjo. Here I play it twofinger thumb lead (with index lead on the varaiation of the B part). I think it is a wonderful tune. I play it on my old unbranded Asian banjo that I bought in 1967. It has a little queer tone but I like the sound. Some of the sound may come from a homemade bridge.
