Here's Kottke's "Cripple Creek" least my take on it. Regards...Jim “Most of the technical inroads that I made came from trying to learn how to play the banjo. I couldn’t play it, but in trying I realized that there were some things that I overlooked in the guitar”...Leo Kottke(Aug 77 Guitar Player magazine). “By trying to learn the Earl Scruggs technique, it got me out of a rut that I had dug for myself with the (right hand picking) pattern I had learned.....” “At one time I was playing a tune I called “The Turtle Hills” and it dawned on me one day that it was “Cripple Creek”... Leo Kottke(Apr 82 Guitar Player). I went bonkers for the banjo in the 80’s. Went almost three years, rarely playing guitar, until to my dismay I realized that solo bedroom banjo can get real monotonous. However, when I finally came to my senses and returned to guitar I realized that my right hand capability had taken on a new dimension. Not professional level mind you, but to this day my right hand (independent thumb and fingers) far exceeds my left hand ability. All of a sudden I was able to “break the code” on the tunes in Stropes’ “Leo Kottke: Eight Songs” book. It was the banjo....especially the use of the thumb as a direct contribution to the melody vice that of an alternating bass backup. So, want to improve your fingerpick ing? more like Leo? Try the banjo, but beware.... it’ll drive you bonkers! (Anybody wanta buy a mint Stelling Sunflower?....I’m in desperate need of a Taylor 12!) If you do take up the banjo, or if you play it already, an even bet is that one of the first, if not the first, tune you’ll learn will be “Cripple Creek”. Guaranteed...its in the rules! However, Leo’s “Cripple Creek” bares only a passing resemblance to the banjo standard. As quoted above, my guess is that Leo’s is a hybrid between The Turtle Hills and Cripple Creek. To my knowledge, Leo has recorded it three times...”Mudlark”, in the closing credits to the “Home and Away” video and this one from “Fahey, Kottke and Lang”. This one’s the pick of the litter....a tour de force. The Mudlark version is overproduced (drums, bass, overdubs ad nauseam..). The video version is really what you should strive for because the Takoma recording is out of reach. Sounds like its coming from the bottom of a well. Leo was really “on” the day he put it to tape. If you’ve never heard this version you’re really missing a major I list in my top 5 of all Kottke recordings. Again, credit where credit due. Thanks to fellow naval aviator and Kottke nut Hank Stanley for revealing the fact that its in Open D (“Cripple Creek” is always...I mean “always” played in Open G on the banjo) and giving me a “rough” (very rough) outline of the tab.. “Cripple Creek” Arr: Leo Kottke From: “Fahey,Kottke & Lang” Takoma Records Tab: Jim Jarrell and Hank (kinda!) Open D Tuning (lowered 1/2 step or so) 12 String (no slide) a arpeggio b bend h hammer-on p pull-off T^ Brush down with thumb or note played with thumb I Index finger M Middle finger / slide down neck(toward saddle) slide up neck(toward nut) x mute or slide to an indefinite point W Whole note(s)ie. hesitate/hold notes |_|_| Triplet (or at least very fast) Playing notes: Section I: Hold “2/4” slide in “4” position and try to sustain the “4” note, almost vibrato like (“dig in” on the “4” position!). Then emphasize the “4” note on the slide up to the “2”. Avoid tendency to play the open 2nd string vice the open 3rd “g” string in the measure. The open 3rd gives the tune a special texture. Section IV: Think intro to Busted Bicycle is tough? Standby!! This is really hard with fingerpicks on! You gotta make it growl. Release pressure off hammered-on notes immediately after don’t let “2” sustain. Note that the 6th string notes come either on the beat (hammer-on) or slightly “0h2” or “0h2” 0 0 Section V: Essentially the same idea as section IV but in the higher register. You might want to try V before IV. Section VI: The weakest part of my tab. This section befuddles me. The end part at the 5th fret can also be played out of 1st position (simple standard tuning E7 chord) fact, it probably should! Intro: All notes with thumb. Doesn’t get any easier than this!! d|--------------------------------------------------| a|--------------------------------------------------| f#--------------------------------------------------| D|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--| A|--------------------------------------------------| D|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0------0----| T T T T etc...

Leo may have initially conceived this as a slide tune. The positions and finger slides are very typical of Open D slide.
