Lesson #091, Cripple Creek IV

Hi Everyone,

Lets look at measure 2 . Lets look at the 2-4 slide first. Remember we only pick the 2 in the 2-4 slide, but the sound of the 4 within the slide counts as an eighth note in measure 2.

Looking at the standard notation now we see how that 2-4 slide looks in the notation as well as the eighth note of second string being played open in the tablature. When we play our slide.... as our sliding finger reaches the 4th fret.....we are also picking the second string open.... you can see how that looks in the standard notation. I hope its not too confusing .....if it is.....just give me a holler and I'll explain it further.

The chords for the songs and tunes are also shown in the tablature. Sometimes the chord change will occur within a measure. You can also look below the chord to the exact note it is lining up with to see how the chords change. Everything lines up..........the tab.....the notation...and the chords.

Good luck with tab and notation everyone. If you have any questions, just let us know, we'll help you through it.

Rock On,

About Me

My photo
In 2009, at the age of 60, I decided to learn to play the 5-string banjo. I searched the internet for lessons and struck gold when I found David Cavage's free banjo lessons at Musicmoose.org. His video hosting site revver.com was having some serious problems at the time so I downloaded as many of the lessons as I could whenever they became available. Revver.com stopped operating shortly afterwards and, sadly, Musicmoose.org is no more. I contacted David early 2020 and he told me he no longer had the original master videos and feared they may have been lost forever. This amazing course of free banjo lessons, from absolute beginner to advanced player, is too good to be forgotten, so this is my attempt to get David's work back out there again so that he can teach, inspire and spread the joy of banjo pickin' to more generations of budding musicians, just like he did with me. I've rounded up all the Moose stuff I could find and put it here, so start pickin' and enjoy!-------MooseHerder.
