This one is a little different. About a year ago I heard some claw hammer that I thought was fantastic. I started working on it but never could get the hang of it. Then I wondered if I could play some type of claw hammer with my picks where I could switch back and forth from one style to another. On Jason Skinners instructional DVD, he talked about Don Renos clicking and that gave me the idea. About 2 weeks ago, I seemed to get a little breakthrough. This piece is a little experiment in that regard. I know I need to get a little more slap in this offset claw hammer as I call it. I know there are a lot of real banjo innovators out there on the hangout that could make this thing really work. I would be interested to know if anyone else has really given this type of thing a try. Thanks for listening and not being too hard on my first try. As far as the cabbages go, if you are not making slaw, just keep bilin em.

Great Ellett!! That definitely has a Reno flavor to it.  You've got a great sound.

RENO-HAMMER!  It really is "flavored!" 

Cool, Ellett!  You just might have started something here.

I should have known that Frailin would come up with a good name for it. Now I have got to make sound worthy of it. Thanks all.

That sounded pretty good. I've heard of some folks using picks (3-finger style) and then do a little clawhammer with the ring and little fingers. The finger w/picks are held up out of the way. A little awkward but it works.
