This is the first and only Clawhammer Guitar instructional DVD ever made. In 26 detailed lessons Steve Baughman teaches you how to take the traditional clawhammer style of old time banjo and make it work powerfully on the guitar as a folk, rock, funk and blues technique. In thie complete immersion course, we begin with the basic pattern and proceed to learn advanced 'Pyro-Picking' techniques like Clawmonics, Slapping, Tapping, Funk and more. Along the way you will learn six great tunes. Tablature is provided for these six tunes. Clawhammer is a powerful technique and not overly difficult. If you put in the time, the rewards are great. And it works on electric guitar too! Steve has taught and performed for 30 years throughtout Asia, Europe, Canads and the United States. He makes the material clear and accessible and injects humor along the way to make the learning process a pleasant one. Check Steve's clawhammer guitar demos out on YouTube to see Clawhammer in action. NOTE: This DVD is not for beginning guitar players. You will benefit most if you can change chords easily and have some basic rhythmic skills on the guitar.
