Clawhammer Banjo

Guitar – Noodles & Twiddly Bits
Steve Goodchild

Don’t Wait Too Long ~ Madeleine Payrox (2004)
Jason Valleau

Here are the chords that Madeleine uses and the exact chord shapes. Follow them closely as they are only 3 string chords and will help you hear the inner harmonies of the chord. She plays this in D so you’ll have to simply move the chords up two frets to play along with her. I didn’t write out the bridge but see if you can figure them out! If you get stuck contact me: Valleau.jason@gmail.com
