5 Variations on Salt Creek

Salt Creek banjo TAB Variations on the A Section

Salt Creek is one of the more popular bluegrass jam session songs, so you’ll want to be able to have a couple banjo breaks to it.  Popular with mandolin and fiddle players.

These variations are only for the A section (no variations on the B section).

In this video, I demonstrate FIVE variations on the old bluegrass jam favorite SALT CREEK. These variations use a wide variety of techniques, sure to keep you busy for a bit.

This song is in the MIXOLYDIAN mode, I encourage you to check out my other LESSON videos on the mixolydian mode.  In short, it uses a F natural instead of a F# in the melody.
