Does anyone play Clawhammer or 2 finger tunes in 3/4 time?
I’m pretty much burned out on bum-dit-ties. I’m finding the “-ties” very annoying now. I do have a coupla other books which have stuff that I like, but I’ve got three waltzes which I’ve really been enjoying lately.
I just wondered if maybe someone else found them interesting
Lots of people.
At the most basic, frailing in 3/4 time is just bum-ditty ditty instead of bum-ditty. I find two finger thumb lead suits it a little bit better - thumb, pinch pinch, thumb pinch pinch, bumpa-dit-dit.
Chip Arnold has many beautiful waltzes on his page, played in two finger index lead.
Put 3/4 time in the search "Q" to the left of this page. banjered
Tombigbee Waltz is one of my favorites. That, and Down in the Willow Garden. Found a video for the latter where I learned it: youtube.com/watch?v=kUIqajyTE0E
Since clawhammer is a finger lead, 2-finger style, most of what I do can be easily matched with clawhammer. Sometimes I bring my thumb down over my finger which is not as easy with c'hammer, but everything else is not hard, just maybe a bit different.
Winder Slide is a pretty one that's easy to play.
