Yes - The Clap

The song, The Clap, is an amazing ragtime, Chet Atkins style song performed by Steve Howe of Yes, an outstanding guitarist. I know there are a lot of people out there who would love to have the lesson for this song. Neil, you are an excellent teacher, but you teased us with your youtube video about the Clap, saying that you might give the lesson if there are enough votes. Well Here's mine, Neil. Please do the song. I don't think I got the url adress for the song correct, but if you go to youtube and type in Steve Howe The Clap, a two-camera video with steve howe playing it will be one of the first selections, just showing the guitar, fret hand, and strumming hand. Please Neil, LET'S DO THIS!!!!!

Hi Neil. Been trying to figure this one out and progress is slow. Any news on this potential lesson sometime soon?

This one could easily be done with the Drip-Feed method, so an enormous lesson wouldn't be needed all at once...

I'm a classical guitarist, but I'd love to learn this one to cover the times I'm asked to play when visiting friends but there is only a steel stringed guitar available. You made it look pretty easy in your YouTube demo. I'm sure it's lots harder than y

HI Neil. I saw Yes on Friday night 2nd May 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland doing 3 full albums. Close to the Edge, Going for the One and The Yes Album. Steve Howe nailed Clap as ever and it would be great if you did a lesson on it. Im sure so many of us have st

this song will push the learning curve for me. I hope you can break it down and put together this challenging piece.
by jimwhite 2076 Days ago
Please do this lesson! I bought your lesson of Mood For A Day and it was utterly brilliant - for the first time ever I was able to play the song properly after years and years of trying and struggling and cursing and failing. Great teaching, great playin

This would be a great lesson! Looks very hard and challenging.

Guys can we just be clear but the song is called 'Clap' and not 'The Clap' which is something else entirely! ;-) And I agree it would make for one hell of a lesson because this has to rate as one of the most unplayable pieces of all time.
