Subject: RE: NIC JONES GUITAR TECHNIQUE
That percussive strike which is such a distinctive feature of his playing is possibly reminiscent of clawhammer, but he didn't really play in a clawhammer style. I would say very little banjo influence - if there is any it probably came via other guitar styles and is heavily diluted. I don't hear anything in his playing which makes me think "banjo".
