  •   steve3p0 @properpat Ahahaha! I was, and still am, the same way! I dabbled in traditional bluegrass rolls for a bit, but now I'm working on the clawhammer myself. Takes a bit to get used to. Just don't give up, man! 1w

alligatorconsciousness I made this song on a springtime driveway long ago. It was a gift from the barn spirits and the sprouting gardens. Now, three years after, I'll be weaving some words to it and taking it to the streets. 🌞🌞🌞 #circles #soundsoftujunga #clawhammer #clawhammerbanjo #oldtime #newtime #modal #dropthumbsnotbombs #frailing #sawmilltuning #music #arabia 3w
