The best clawhammer instruction video I've seen

"The basic clawhammer strum takes time to develop. (Ive been at it for a year, and it's starting to sound pretty ripping now!). This video is great, goes through everything slow, has good songs, which progress from easiest (basic strum) to hammer ons and pull offs, then to doubble thumb, then finally to drop thum, which he says takes you through beginner to intermediate. I think drop thumb is pretty tricky, so I might put it beginner to advanced. Like I said, I've been at it for a year, and I'm not through to the end of the 2nd DVD yet, and can't drop thumb that well. I would also recommend checking out the "daily frail" from patrick on youtube.com, as he is a great teacher too. Watch out though, clawhammer is more additictive than crack, and could lead to broken relationships with those around you!"
