Free Banjo Lesson for Salt Creek
Here is the video:
In this FREE banjo lesson, I cover the Bluegrass favorite SALT CREEK. This arrangement uses only a few rolls and hand positions.
Salt Creek is in the mode of MIXOLYDIAN. This is why it has a F natural chord and F naturals in the melody. If you’d like to learn more about MIXOLYDIAN, just search in the top right hand corner; a couple of my blogs on the topic will appear.
If you would like the TAB to this song, you can find it on my website here at:
or it is also available to ALL my Patreon Members:
In closing, Salt Creek is often played in the key of A; if a fiddle or mandolin is involved at your local jam, you will want to practice this with a capo as well.
