I wonder if I am missing something in the clawhammer course. Despite Christopher’s excellent instruction I just can’t properly master this technique. Decided to proceed to the capstone performance of Cornbread and Butter Beans even though my fingers are not playing the entry level pieces well enough – not the brush but the single inside strings (E and C). It may be an age thing – my stiff, clumsy fingers just don’t hit those strings well with this stroke as they do with normal plucking. Maybe I should just keep on practicing the whole piece and hope the fingering comes in time.
