Some of you may be aware that you can play the first part of Banjo in the Hollow as a substitute for the first part of Cripple Creek. The real challenge becomes trying to change things out, but still keep the song recognizable throughout. In the video below I show 5 ways to do that and purposely kept them fairly basic so that players with less experience can begin to explore the way this is done. Questions/comments are welcome. Happy Picking to all! Eddie

Nice! But don't forget to have a 3/4 time variation. Here's my frailing version.

Look here, beginning at about the 9:20 mark: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OlneqC0mVsk

Earl hands his banjo off to an old friend, who then leads the group in his own "Cripple Creek."

Thanks to everyone who responded to this. Lew H , love the Cripple Creek Waltz! Rich Weill , I think I'd seen that, but had forgotten about CC being in there and that is the 5th fret variation instead of the opening slide. Happy picking to all!
