Clinton Davis is a multi-instrumentalist born and raised in northern Kentucky and currently living in San Diego, California. He has studied music his whole life and taken a wandering path through many styles. Clinton began with classical music, studying piano and earning a doctorate in music. Along the way, he explored the traditional music of his family home on stringed instruments like the banjo, fiddle, guitar, and mandolin.

Clinton's wandering path between styles has given him a broad perspective on music that he tries to pass on to all his students. He has learned music in a lot of different ways - through musical notation, through music theory, by ear, by feel - and has found value in all of them. This is one of his greatest assets as a teacher: He can help you find a way of learning that serves both you and the music you want to play. The study of music has been one of the most enriching parts of his life - teaching him the value of hard work and discipline, the joy and satisfaction that comes from mastering a skill, and patience. Teaching is his opportunity to share that enrichment. It is a great reward to watch a student as they learn to identify and express their own musical ideas and tastes.

For years, Clinton played folk music mostly for his own enjoyment before building a performance career that has now included appearances at folk festivals across the country like the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival (Washington), Brooklyn Folk Festival, and the National Jug Band Jubilee (Kentucky). Still, nothing beats getting together to play with friends. That's why he teaches skills that will empower students to play with others.

This lesson will combine my arrangements of three pieces originally composed for another instrument. In addition to hopefully expanding your guitar repertoire, I’ll provide commentary on the challenges of arranging for guitar and highlight technical solutions I’ve used for common musical problems.Drunken Man’s Dream - a crooked fiddle blues from Kentucky fiddle legend Doc RobertsCumberland Blues - a Doc Roberts fiddle mel...

This lesson is intended for advanced players looking for ways to voice chords and arrange tunes in ways that sound rich and complex but feel nimble under the hands. We’ll look mostly at arrangements I’ve made of blues and fiddle melodies, and also look at the playing of the remarkable Johnny St. Cyr. We begin our lesson with Ma Rainey’s Yonder Comes the Blues. This is followed by Jelly Roll Morton’s Jelly Roll Blues. Composed in 1915 and was one of the first publis...

This lesson is intended for players that have already learned most of their open position chords but have not yet tried plucking strings using multiple fingers. I will guide you through exercises that will introduce the most fundamental rhythms and fretboard moves of old time picking. Then, we’ll work our way through a series of tunes of increasing difficulty, taken from the repertoire of the greatest old-time pickers: Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotten, Sam Chatmon...

This lesson is intended for players who are seeking a greater understanding of how to get beyond basic open chords, or first position, use the full fretboard. We will do so by understanding the concept of a movable shape. The tunes selected will slowly introduce you to a variety of shapes commonly used by the old-time masters to unlock the neck. In addition to learning these examples, I’ll talk about the logic that makes movable shapes work, empowering you to create your ow...
