Great! Share more tunes with us.

It's clawhammer through and through and the and the tenor tuning / second string drone rings true to the many different tunings clawhammer players use.

Very cool, unique sound, the subtle tonal echoes of tenor give it a delightfully nuanced texture. I like it a lot!

Nice Paolo. I've played a few things clawhammer on tenor. I find playing in G (in GDAE tuning) means the thumb can hit 4th and 3rd alternately. (And a root / tonic chord position of 0023 is easy too.) Obviously in CGDA that would mean playing in C.

Thank you Andy! I’m happy you like my experiment, actually I played in the key of D so that I can use first and second  as drone and fret on third and fourth string...

on Irish tuning it would be in the key of A
