Bluegrass Banjo at Sheldon's Place - Surrey, BC

Surrey, BC, right in the heart of the lower mainland, with beautiful weather, wonderful scenery and lots of opportunity for pickin'. You'd be hard pressed to find a finer place to live and pick bluegrass. Check back often for my take on things with five strings!

Cripple Creek Tablature


Here is an intermediate arrangement of the traditional tune Cripple Creek. You'll want to practice it capoed on the 2nd fret since it is usually played in the key of A during jam sessions.

If you find that you can't keep up with the thumb work in the B part, create a drill for yourself using an alternating thumb roll at slow speeds. Slowly increase the speed of the roll as your hand warms up.

Don't get discouraged if it takes a long time to build up the speed of thumb work. It is normal to find this part difficult and to get up to speed.

No you're not weird! Well on second thought you do play banjo. Right?
