Clawhammer Banjo 1

Begin by using chords to strum simple songs with a technique known as frailing. Learning with tablature and by ear, you'll gradually develop a melodic application of frailing called clawhammer. Explore old time favorites such as “Cripple Creek” and work with alternate tunings for standards like “Shady Grove” and “Little Sadie.”
