Discuss the Banjo lesson: Cripple Creek- Timing Theory



This is an older lesson, but a good one to reinforce the fret hand timing we’ve learned so far!


Hey Ben I just learned cripple creek on the banjo then I was doing some window shopping in your store and watched you demonstrate the rk36 and when you played it I noticed you fretted the 4th fret of the d string a couple times. Is that more of a adavanced version you played? Or just a different than your lesson ? Just making sure I’m not missing something


Not necessarily more advanced, but just a different note selection than I have in the lesson. You’re not missing anything!


I love this lesson thx Banjo Ben!


Great lesson, Ben - defining the theory and difference between the eighth note & sixteenth note. I prefer the sixteenth note- it just sounds so much more ’ bluegrassy’. I’m sure there are reasons to play the eighth note version…but if the option is open…put me down for the sixteenth
thanks, Ben
