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


A few years of experimentation yielded few results, despite good sources like Pete Seeger's book. but I had an epiphany at a workshop featuring Leroy Troy and John Hermann--they demonstrated a slowed down version of the galloping rhythm needed. I hurried home, afriad the revelation would seep away. It didn't, and today I'm a proud, mediocre practitioner. Of course, getting good is something else altogether.
