Steve Baughman: “Hard Times”
 
Peghead Nation clawhammer guitar instructor plays a Stephen Foster favorite.
July 12, 2018

Peghead Nation instructor Steve Baughman is known for his melodic fingerstyle guitar playing, which draws on Celtic, Appalachian, and various ethnic and folk traditions. He is also a pioneer of the unique clawhammer guitar technique, one of the few guitarists who have taken the traditional clawhammer style of old-time banjo and made it work powerfully on the guitar as a folk, rock, funk, and blues technique.

Peghead Nation recently launched Steve’s Clawhammer Guitar course, in which you’ll learn to use the clawhammer technique on the guitar to play traditional dance tunes with a powerful groove or sing on sweet contemplative melodies. In this video, Steve demonstrates the technique on a beautiful arrangement of Stephen Foster’s “Hard Times.”
