Elmer Bird - The Banjo Man From Turkey Creek

 It`s been a while since I posted some good old-time banjo. This is some very hard driving, rhythmic style claw hammer picking. He played what I tend to call the Tennessee style claw hammer banjo, which is more rhythmic than the North Carolina style, which tries to match the same notes as the fiddle, note for note. Mr. Bird had a VERY hard driving style. Listen and enjoy!
