Double Thumbing  dou·ble thumb·ing adjective \ˈdə-bəl ˈthəm-iŋ\  Change text size for readability...  Print This Page

00:30Double thumbing has been used to describe consecutive thumbed notes within the frailing motion. The exact meaning of this term, like most other old time banjo styles seems open to some interpretation. Some use it to describe the alternating thumb and index finger of the two finger old time picking style, or the same alternation in downstroke, "melodic" clawhammer playing ("Clawhammer Style Banjo" by Ken Perlman, 1989, p. 83)
