Lesson #093, Cripple Creek VI

Hi Everyone,

Always try to get your left hand techniques just as nice and clean as you can, that is something strive for as you progress .

If you would like to use a metronome to help you with the timing variations discussed in this series, feel free. You can set your metronome very slowly at first, and you can tap your foot along or whatever and however you feel comfortable to understand the timing the best way that you can understand it.

Listen closely to the slides in this video, the variations are quite subtle, but definetly worth exploring.

Be aware of the rests in the notation and of the slides being carried over into other measures.

Timing is everything! Roll Away,

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.
