Agreed. The clawhammer technique has nearly become a lost art. Thanks for keping it alive, Al. Really nice work!

Al, My unschooled ear (don't know nothin about clawhammers or banjos) really enjoyed the tune.
I was disappointed to see you opted not to make it downloadable. Understandable, given the quality of the work. But a poor man like me loves to download stuff that my ears like to hear from here!
Thanks for the great tune, anyhow.
Darrell
