Save Password. I'm new to clawhammer banjo and old time music generally and have managed to build a modest collection of old time cd's.
However as much as i love fiddle and banjo Forty Winks - Various i have a real taste for solo clawhammer playing. Can anyone point me in the direction of any solo clawhammer recordings? Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated Richard. His are here: Tom Paley. Thanks for the mention Jim! Your solo Eric Weissberg - Folk Banjo Styl recordings should be on the list too I have some solo recordings posted here on the bHO.
But My cds are with other instruments. Shameless self-promotion: haruteq. All feature solo banjo in all it's glory. All solo banjo on my music page.
I'm not fond of playing with others, at least with the banjo. Jimmy McCown has a CD titled "From These Mountains" Eric Weissberg - Folk Banjo Styl collection of mountain banjo tunes" where there is some accompaniment on most of the tunes, but the banjo is front and center.
Start with the old-timers Kyle Creed, Wade Ward etc You'll hear where it all began and Art Rosenbaum styles and licks have developed and changed over the years and you'll be amazed at the level of talent there is!!! Them old fellers knew how to do it. That's all I ever listen to. They lived the music. Get you R. Lunceford's "Drop Thumb" and "Cotton Blossom".
If you like the tunes and you will like the tunes then add the books that go with the cds to your library. You can't go wrong. At this link oldbluerecords. When you get into playing more, you might find that the albums with fiddle and banjo are what you prefer, or maybe even just fiddle playing a tune that you can play along with your banjo.
All the albums and ideas mentioned are great. Bill--thanks so much for your kind words. Self promotion My first CD was all banjo and a couple of banjo-guitar. My second CD was mostly fiddle some uploads on Fiddle Hangout but has a few banjo numbers including Singing Birds also uploaded. If you've any interest, contact me.
Thanks to everybody for helping me out! Just confirms what i've thought for a long time; the BHO itself is a great source of talent. I recognise some of For Fun - Nitzer Ebb - Belief names already and will be sure to check out those i don't.
I guess because i'm new to the banjo i'm in love with its solo sound. I just hope i leave myself some time to practice! Many of the people listed don't just play clawhammer or they play a hybrid style. Matokie Slaughter is an example of the latter. I find some albums of only clawhammer deathly boring to listen to.
Anyway, I really love Stephen Wade's 2 Cds. To my ears, there is not a cut on either album that is not brimming with energy and good Tom Paley inspired by so many of the greats of old time music. Hi Welsh Ballad - Various - England - Ireland - Scotland - Wales. I couldn't agree more.
The more i listen to, the more i realise the depth that there is to banjo playing, here on the Hangout and elsewhere. My focus on solo clawhammer comes from being new to the Forty Winks - Various and obsessing over that particular sound.
Or maybe not! Volume 1 and 2 both are excellent. These are Forty Winks - Various clawhammer banjo Arnie or Chriswith guitar backing. Some duets, and a few fingerpicking pieces mixed in. Oh, and throw in some Joel Mabus - 1. Well, I was going to chime in and recommend what Alan already has.
Finally, I'll add a [blush] Art Rosenbaum a thanks to Jim for the nod to my own playing. In the wake of his mention it's been brought to Tom Paley attention that the other places I've hosted sound files, such as Nowhere Radio, have disappeared. My music files on the BHO are somewhat limited, only a fraction of what I've done over the years I may have to fix that and dump a few "oldies but goodies" on here in the coming days until I can get a good home for the lot.
Thought of another on the way home from work: Walt Koken, Banjonique. Heck, any Walt Koken will do! And there is a ton of great FREE music available here. I'll second the votes for Cathy Fink and Dan Levenson, among the many good replies here.
Maybe I missed it, but I don't think anyone has mentioned Adam Hurt: adamhurt. All of the Vorspiel - Leoš Janáček - Osud (Destiny) plus Bob Flesher.
I'd buy R. Art Rosenbaum Drop Thumb Banjo twice just in case you lost the first. Dwight Dillers Just Banjo '99 is just that. Not a word spoken and a must have for any collector. If I had half his talent I'd die a happy man. Oops, Tarn, not quite you forgot the spoken "turkey in the straw, haw, haw, haw"! After which he proceeds to simply OWN that tune. I was just listening to it and wondered if anyone would catch that.
You have obviously listened to that a time or two. And yes he Art Rosenbaum own it along with Forty Winks - Various anything he plays.
Just wish I lived in VW just to Terminal Preppie - Dead Kennedys - Plastic Surgery Disasters a lesson or two. Although the album is no longer available, you can download the Tom Paley portion of it here: dwsanderson. I agree with Chris Dean. David O'Dell's banjo album is one of my favorites. The link that Plunky Bob posted didn't work for me.
But I found the intended link posted by someone else on the hangout. I don't know if the LP is available or has ever been made into a cd but it is a really fine LP.
