Save Password. Greetings: I have been working on Bluegrass banjo for about 3 years now and want to get started in Clawhammer also. Does anyone have the book and willing to share their opinions? Would anyone reccommend any other beginning books? I am not familiar with Wayne Erbsen's books.

Entertaining, certainly, but probably not the clearest instruction available.
True, old time banjo players frequently retune the instrument for various effects or convenience. However, for beginners I strongly believe that starting with the standard bluegrass open G tuning is the thing to do. The photos of hand positions seem vague too, and this is critical to clawhammer. Potentially useful, but not ideal in my opinion. This entered our house last Christmas, and I've been learning how to play clawhammer banjo since! Wayne Erbsen made it really easy; it's so easy, other clawhammer banjo tableture is pretty difficult to read!
I didn't listen to the CD until I had learned all the songs I cared to learn, and it wasn't that helpful. I was motivated to learn clawhammer banjo, because my brother didn't really know how! So I can play songs with clawhammer, but I can't play rolls.
I've memorized that in not much time at all! View 1 comment. Have really enjoyed this instruction book for banjo. I like the simple and structured approach and how it gets you up and playing quickly. It always comes through when the author lives the music, instrument and their traditions and this comes through in spades here.
Great beginner book but I believe it helped that I have many years of guitar under my belt before deciding to play a little banjo.
