Cripple Creek - Weber Yellowstone Vintage A mandolin and White Swallow banjo mandolin duet
A popular one for the banjo, Cripple Creek is a Southern Appalachian folksong/tune. It is an example of a "play party tune" - simple, lilting melodies, with improvised words in responses to the experiences of courting, working and living. There are many different versions of the lyrics and many Cripple Creek locations laying claim to this tune. Nice to bring together a classic US made Weber Yellowstone Vintage A mandolin and my new Australian made White Swallow long scale large pot banjo mandolin. They complement each other beautifully -- their quality craftsmanship and lovely bluegrassy tone.

Mandolin Lesson 6, Cripple Creek (AABB)
Books with this song are available at: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/crowleymusic Scype lessons available too. Send a contact request to n.crowley12 on scype. Cripple Creek is what we call a "fiddle tune" which mostly refers to the 'form' the song uses which is AABB. In this case A is the first melody and it repeats. B is the second melody and it also repeats. I play through the song 3x and recommend that you play it a minimum of 2x through when you practice it on your own so that you get the transition from the end of the "B" section back to the "A" section. Thanks!

Cripple Creek on the Bayou
This is just me hanging out at my favorite spot down here in my dear ole Mississippi, just a creek a few minutes from my house near Louisville. Lots of deer, squirrels and snakes 'round these parts, heard around there's a panther about, and possibly black bears as well. Tons of beaver ponds and birds. Never seen a gator around this particular pond, but some other ones in the region have them, seen plenty of 'em. It's a lovely spot, I come here now and then with a six pack of beer or a jug of shine, a can of beans and hang out all day picking my banjo when I can. This is one of the most peaceful areas I have ever known, away from it all, just the sound of them critters going about their simple lives. An old man that lives in Texas owns this 200 somethin' acres of land and he allows us to be in the premises, and actually even get our firewood from here. In exchange of watching over the place for him, make sure nobody is abusing the land. However, he died recently, so the future of this stretch of land is uncertain, as his sons ain't good ole boys that want any land and might could just sell it. If they do, it might be all gone for logging, which would be a shame really, but oh well, the world needs wood to come from somewhere... The pistol used here is just a tiny .25 ACP I sometimes carry in my pocket, just in case of God knows what out there, but you betcha my .12 gauge pump shotgun ain't never too far of reach... just in case too!

Bruno Banjo Mandolin SOLD!
This banjo mandolin is for sale on ebay. I have this set up with 4 strings instead of 8 for two reasons, I think it has a better banjo sound and the nut cracked when I was making repairs and I was left with the option of keeping the original nut or making a replacement. I love the old time sound of this little guy. An 8 string nut and bridge will be included with a nice refinished case.

Coleman's March - Beginner Mandolin Tune
I began learning mandolin recently, and I'm uploading some videos on my mandolin progress. Coleman's march to me has a sound that hearkens back to the Civil War era. The tune is sometimes said to have been written in 1847 by Joe Coleman on the occasion of his hanging, in which case, it was his funeral march. I've copied the story below: The story of the hanging of Fiddlin’ Joe Coleman is enough to send chills up and down your spine. In 1847, near the town of Slate Fork, in Adair County, Kentucky, a shoemaker and fiddler named Joe Coleman was living with his wife, and his wife’s mother and sister. According to some accounts, Joe had been acting erratically and not long after that, someone smothered his mother-in-law to death with a pillow. A few days later, Joe’s wife went into the woods to gather bark and never came back. Joe went searching for his wife in the woods and when he returned, he was carrying her dead body. Some claimed that Joe killed his wife because he knew she suspected him in the death of her mother. His blood stained shoemaker’s knife was later found at the scene of the crime. From the start of the trial, the evidence against Joe Coleman was circumstantial, at best. The case was based solely on the testimony of Coleman’s sister-in-law. Apparently, there was bad blood between Coleman and his wife’s sister, and the jury found him guilty in the first degree and sentenced him to die by hanging. On the way to his hanging, Coleman reportedly sat on his coffin and played his fiddle as a two-wheeled ox cart slowly carried him to the site where a hastily-built wooden gallows had been constructed. The slow, dirge-like tune that he played has since been known as “Coleman’s March.” Even as the noose was being tightened around his neck, Joe Coleman maintained his innocence. Before his sentence was carried out, one legend tells how Joe promised to give his fiddle to anyone in the crowd who could play the tune better than he could. A fiddler named Franz Prewitt stepped forward and took Coleman up on his offer. Before he started fiddling, Prewitt tuned the instrument into what is called “dead man’s tuning” and managed to out-fiddle Joe Coleman. Minutes before the trap door opened under Joe’s feet, the condemned man handed over his fiddle to its new owner, as the assembled crowd held their breath and waited for justice to be served. Although a little too late, Coleman’s claim of innocence was supported many years later by the deathbed confession of an old lady who admitted to the killing of Joe Coleman’s wife. Immediately after the execution, several of Coleman’s relatives secretly spirited his body away, and somehow managed to bring him back from death’s door. After he regained his health, Coleman boarded a steamboat that took him down the Cumberland River toward Nashville, Tennessee. From there, Coleman headed out west, and from there, the trail grows cold. Even though Joe Coleman himself was never again seen in Eastern Kentucky, the tune named after him lived on, and is commonly played today as “Coleman’s March” or “Joe Coleman’s March.” After all these years, the tune still retains its dirge-like rhythm and feel, which is rare in old-time and bluegrass music. Most instrumental tunes are either fast breakdowns, danceable reels, or waltzes. “Coleman’s March” is unique in that respect. As it turns out, Joe Coleman did not compose the tune that now bears his name. Instead, he reworked an old Celtic tune known as “The Irish Jaunting Car.” No doubt inspired by his own looming execution, he changed the rhythm of the tune from a sprightly dance tune into a mournful dirge. A few years later, at the start of the Civil War, a Englishman named Harry Macarthy was in Jackson, Mississippi at the signing of Mississippi’s Ordinance of Secession. Macarthy took the very same Irish tune that Joe Coleman had played and used it as the melody for a new set of lyrics he recently composed to honor the Confederacy. The result was “The Bonnie Blue Flag.” Next to “Dixie,” it was the most popular tune of the Confederacy. But unlike Joe Coleman’s mournful melody, Harry Macarthy kept the lively and jaunty flavor of the original Celtic tune, which more accurately reflected the early and naïve optimism of the Southern cause. As for Macarthy himself, he didn’t stick around long enough to find out if his newly-composed song would help inspire the South to victory. Instead, he high-tailed it to Pennsylvania and then California, where he spent the rest of the war years far from the fields of battle that he helped to inspire with his song of Southern patriotism. A free mandolin video lesson with tabs for Coleman's March is available from Baron Collins-Hill at MandoLessons.com http://www.mandolessons.com/lessons/fiddle-tunes/colemans-march
