  2. I have learned to streamline my lessons, so that everyone is done with Cripple Creek in 3 weeks, because people will get bored if they do the same thing for too long. I think working over the forward roll is about the most important exercise for a bluegrass banjo player.
  3. About: The first recording in the Folktunes collection is Cripple Creek, played on the open-backed five-stringed banjo in the clawhammer style. How learned: Martha Owen taught me this tune in the Summer of at the John C. Campbell Folk School. It was the first song I ever learned on Banjo.
  4. Notes: mucking around last night and fell into a 2-finger thumb lead version of a generally well known Banjo lead and a melodic backing to Cripple Creek, put em together with an end tag and there it is. The three note chords in it are an up-strum.

  6. Entry level banjos must be designed for easy learning. The Cripple Creek 50 with Resonator and Planetary tuners (CCRP) is just that! We have taken our popular CC model and added a full walled resonator and geared planetary tuners to suit the beginning bluegrass banjo player.
  7. "Cripple Creek" is an Old Time Appalachian folk song for the fiddle, though it is often played on the banjo as well. It has become a standard among bluegrass musicians and is often one of the first songs a banjo picker learns. No one knows exactly when it was composed, but there are theories about just where Cripple Creek is.

  9. Cripple Creek's wide and Cripple Creek's deep I'll wade ole Cripple Creek before I sleep Roll my breeches to my knees I'll wade ole Cripple Creek when I please * Refrain I went down to Cripple Creek To see what them girls had to eat I got drunk and fell against the wall Ole corn likker was the cause of it all * Refrain Alternate Refrain: Goin.
  10. "Cripple Creek" falls in a grey area, however. As a fiddle tune, its traditional key is A (banjo plays as if in G, but with the capo at the second fret), but it's sometimes sung, too. Finding a key that's convenient for both the singing and the picking can be challenging.
