The parts in this book range from beginner to advanced. Though many parts are arranged in standard “Scruggs” style, some are arranged in frailing or “clawhammer” style, and many are arranged in “melodic” style. Where “Scruggs” style is considered, “less melody/more finger roll pattern,” melodic style, as the name implies, is “more melody/less finger roll pattern.” Clawhammer style uses no finger roll patterns; instead, it is made up of a melody within a strumming rhythm pattern. Clawhammer is considered a “self-accompaniment” style. Companion CDês included.
