Lesson #092, Cripple Creek V

Hi Everybody,

I started out this video with a song I learned along time ago......Wont you come home Bill Bailey......in the style of Don Reno. Eventually we will be going over the styles of many players....from the early pioneers of Reno, Scruggs and Stanely, to the styles of more modern and progressive players as well. I myself love it all, from the ultra-traditional to the ultra-modern/progressive. Remember there is ALWAYS room for expansion.....it is never ending, and that is the coolest thing, in my opinion, about music.

The first part of this song is pretty straight forward....rolls and left hand techniques that we have already gone over. Take your time and enjoy one of the classic banjo songs of all time.

Rock On All,

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.
