I have some clawhammer and guitar background. Is it OK if I skip to the cripple creek lesson or will I be missing something (I can do rolls, hammer ons and pull offs)
Having said that I would encourage you to work through the beginners learning path if your new to 3 finger Scruggs and Melodic Banjo. Ben has assembled this comprehensive set of tutorials to assist students acquire the skills required to become proficient at each skill level.
Welcome to The Forum @joe2 . I hope you check in here often.
If you become a regular, I would encourage you to do what feels best because the lessons will always be here.
That said, I also agree with @Archie and as a gold member of several years, I often go back and read study lessons several times because there’s always something to learn or something that I’ve overlooked. I just provided my input so that you get the most out of what you believe you came here for.
The important thing is that you’re here! I hope you enjoy and find Value out of the best online environment and instruction - not to overlook the value of experience from The Forum members too.
I also think it would be great if you were to post a video of some of your clawhammer work.
Well it is always been a “Fringe” topic as most of us play Scruggs style, there seems to be a growing interest…
Id be happy to post. I will figure out how to do it!
