I enjoyed both "Whispering" and "The world is waiting for the sunrise".

However, I would not call them "clawhammer style". It appears that you are down-picking with a fingernail, followed by a down strum. Your thumb is moving as if it might pick the 5th string...but it isn't.

The rhythm of these 20s foxtrots isn't well suited to the "bum-ditty" gallop of clawhammer...and the more complex harmonies don't like the droning of the G string. You've come up with a nice solution. Well done!

Thank you, I'm glad you like the songs.

As for the fifth string. I strum it with my thumb, but very gentlysmiley  We try to dynamically separate the melody from the rest (strumming over the strings, and the drone of the fifth string).
I was inspired by videos where Michael J. Miles plays clawhammer like this.
