I think you might be confusing the different methods of flashing CWM (i.e., Rooted or non-rooted). ADB, as I understand it, can only be used for rooted devices. Provided you already unlucked the bootloader, you need to use the fastboot method to flash your recovery.
The problem with a lot of the tutorials out there, is they were written with a rooted device in mind. Since .21 became the norm, and root is off the table (for now), some of the guides don't clearly indicate the steps you have to take.
Take a look at this site. He's got a few videos and step by step tutorials to help you out.

Just work on getting fastboot running, and you should have an easy time from there.....good luck!
