Notes: Cathy Moore's web site, Banjo Meets World, offered tunes from other cultures done clawhammer style. "Säkkijärven Polkka" from Sweden has four parts and offers lots of left-hand work (pull-offs and hammer-ons) as well as drop thumb. This tune uses the tuning gEGBE, though she tunes to gDFAD and adds the capo to the 2nd fret while leaving the 5th string unchanged. Her web site is no longer updated, but you can view the videos and tips here: https://banjomeetsworld.wordpress.com/ She also provided useful tips for adding drive and syncopation to traditional old-time tunes.
