This series of 6 videos teaches the basic clawhammer rhythm and essential techniques by learning multiple versions of the songs Cripple Creek
and Cumberland Gap
. As you progress through the lessons you will add new techniques (fretted notes, pull offs, hammer ons, slides) to those two songs.NOTE: BE SURE to use your desktop or laptop to download the lessons. This is a large download
and after downloading you will "unzip" the files. Be sure to allow plenty of time for the download to complete. It is possible to transfer the videos to a tablet or other mobile device after you have them on your regular computer.Video Lessons Included:
- Beginning Techniques (31 minutes)
- Basic Strums and Picking (18 minutes)
- Fretted Notes (27 minutes)
- Pull Offs (40 minutes)
- Hammer Ons (31 minutes)
- Slides (26 minutes)
That is a total of 173 minutes (2 hours, 53 min) of instruction for about the same price as a couple of half hour lessons at a music store--if you can even find a clawhammer banjo teacher! And with video lessons you can watch and play along with the videos as many times as you need to
until you get it.
I think this method of using a couple of tunes, and gradually introducing all of the most important left hand techniques one at a time, is the easiest way to learn.
After you complete these six lessons there are 12 more lessons available, with many more songs, chords, and tunings at http://www.bradleylaird.com/claw/clawvideos.html
