GUEST,Songster Bob Clawhammer Banjo: Where to start? (26) RE: Clawhammer Banjo: Where to start? 20 Sep 00

Oops! Did I miss someone's email? I'll write directly.

Someone suggested the John Burke book, which I recommend be avoided until you've learned to play. It has a very strange tablature system (based on "phrases," not "bars" or "counts") and has numerous errors in transcription. If you play already, you can use your ears to correct for the errors, but if you're new at it, it's a tough row to hoe.

Now I'll go back and make amends for the oversight above.
