The old mountain clawhammer style of 5-string Banjo has been called knocking it, dropping it, double crossing the pump-handle, beating,rapping, framing, thumpin’ it, whamming, doubling down and crossover, according to different localities.
This exciting and funny, hand-written book teaches you to play it and other styles including bluegrass, in simple and clear steps using a easy to read 4 line tablature. Even if you don’t end up playing, by the time you have finished this book, you’ll have had a lot of fun thinking about it.
The author, Ken Ring, tells me he has letters from the late, great PETE SEEGER, congratulating him on an excellent and uncomplicated tutor for the banjo. On meeting comedian and Banjo player BILLY CONNOLLY, Ken was delighted to find that Billy too, had a copy he’d purchased in Australia and loved it.
