Foggy Mountain Banjo Project Part 5 -- Cripple Creek

Posted by bellf on Monday, June 11, 2018

This is the May edition of my Foggy Mountain Banjo Project.

Cripple Creek was one of the first tunes I learned on the banjo, so although I listened to Bennett Sullivan's recording to learn it by ear, I pretty much already knew what to do. I also listened to Earls Scruggs's recording to try to pick up the variations. I was able to figure out parts of the variations by ear, but I also consulted the Scruggs book for help.

The up the neck break is my own variation, which I threw in for fun.

I think I'll try Little Darlin pal of Mine next time.

Well done! Like the up-the-neck part, think I'll give that a try.

Thanks Wayne. The up the neck break is pretty straightforward I think. I'd love to hear it if you want to post a recording of it.
