Have you ever wondered how you can play clawhammer guitar like Molly Tuttle ? In this video, you'll get step-by-step directions on how to learn this incredibly rhythmic and melodic technique on guitar.
Clawhammer technique started off on banjo, but has since made its way into the guitar world. Named after the claw-like position your hand is in, clawhammer technique is technically challenging but incredibly rewarding.
The basic principle of clawhammer technique involves a brush, a thumb, and a note. These terms are each defined within the lesson. When you put these three terms parts together and practice them, you'll be well on your way to working your clawhammer guitar technique.
In addition to learning clawhammer guitar in this video, you'll also learn how to play a scale, a song, and a harmonized scale using clawhammer guitar technique. By the end of this video, you'll have an essential baseline of clawhammer guitar that you can use to learn more advanced techniques within the clawhammer world.
I also want to take a moment to highlight the work of Molly Tuttle, Michael Stadler, Steve Baughman, Chris Coole, Adam Hurt, and Cara Luft.
