I am familiar with the "clawhammer" or "banjo" technique of picking the fourth string after the strum, but I've experimented with some of my own tunes and have been picking both the first and fourth strings after the strum, like I'm "pinching" the strings. I'm sure there is a name for this technique but I don't know what it is.

Am I making sense, and can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

"Lobster Picking"

I learned it when I was a nipper*














* English word for young child, not sure if it translates into Yankee :)

Thank you, kind sir. Fortunately, I do speak a bit of the mother tongue Brit style (more of an Onslow than a Hyacinth, I fear).
