GUEST,banjoman Tech: OT clawhammer banjo skills how long? (13) RE: Tech: OT clawhammer banjo skills how long? 09 Apr 03

I learned by simply trying for a long time and adapted some of my guitar tecnique. I am usually accused of playing a style that no one can copy although it resembles claw hammer style using only thumb & two fingers. Had to adapt to some loss of hand movement following surgery but it sound OK (to me). The essence of banjo playing is to enjoy it and in effect create a way of playing that you like and find best suits you. No two players play the same anyway, but you can learn from watching and asking.
Good picking
