I’ve been spending a lot of time playing banjo on this vacation. In the breaks between practice I often search for musicians playing in the clawhammer (frailing) style on YouTube. Today I found Hunter Robertson.
I love his clawhammer style and his vocals are very primitive. I love the banjo he’s playing! It’s a half-fretless banjo, giving that fretless sound but giving you the frets in the upper neck where you need them. I’ve been wanting one of these for a long time and this is only sparking that desire.
Check out his playing and let me know what you think.
