Repertoire and Technique

  • Code:DLHOLCL23
  • Skill Level:Early Intermediate (3)

David Holt has long been considered one of the finest players and teachers of old-time clawhammer banjo. He learned his craft directly from some of the original masters -- Fred Cockerham, Kyle Creed, Tommy Jarrell and other legendary players.

David covers the fundamentals of clawhammer playing, and provides an overview of the specific nuances that will make your renditions acurate and true to the traditional old-time sound. You'll learn important right hand techniques such as single- and double-thumbing, "continuous" picking, double-thumb rolls and the all-important "clicking' sound that comes from down-picking the strings with just the right hand position.

Student Review:

"I've just finished David Holt's Clawhammer Banjo 1 & 2 series. I didn't know how to play the banjo last year, and now I'm playing old time with a band. David's series made this possible. Thank you." -- Mike Lenich
