Cripple Creek is made up of three pieces, a Low Melody, a High Part and a Roll. The Low Melody part is repeated after each other part so it makes up 50% of the song. Once you’ve learnt to play this, you’re half way there!
This video gives you an overview of how the pieces fit together, then explains some basic playing techniques to get you started with the Thumb Lead / Double Thumbing style of playing. Finally, around 10 minutes in, you will be shown how to play the Low Melody part itself. Get free TAB
