ok so I've been watching the clip on youtube of Johnny "Slim" Campbell playing Person to Person live (not sure how to post the video in here but maybe somebody can help with that...) this guy is actually the reason I got into slide in the first place believe it or not.

Same here AJ. I know this is an oldish post - but I couldn't help responding. I'd half credit the old Budweiser slide ad (that was the first bit of slide I learned) but seeing John Campbell live in Dublin is what really turned me on to slide guitar. I saw him twice. Once in a small pub gig, and another time supporting Buddy Guy. For my money, his set was worth 10 times Buddy Guy's.

I could be wrong but isn't claw hammer up strokes with a thumb bass and frailing down strokes with the fingers?


It really seems to not have an end-all be-all definition.

Yep, clawhammer is typically downstrokes, but I'd wager that most banjoists who call themselves clawhammer players throw in a few upstrokes every now and then. I know I do, but my banjo technique isn't exactly based on any single tradition. I prefer using my thumb, middle and ring fingers for downstrokes and my index finger for upstrokes. It's a bit of a cross between clawhammer and Pete Seeger's picking style, which puts it more in the frailing realm, I guess.

Here's how Pete does it.

At the time, it was regarded as a primitive, old-time technique. Here is some modern info that looks pretty accurate (what do I know?) to me:

BTW, I don't think that anyone would refer to Mark Knopfler's playing as 'primitive'. HTH. Enjoy.
