    I’m new at playing the banjo so I was wondering what kind of roll to use with this song?

  4. RagMama123 Says:

    This is not a hard arrangement, but I do use several different rolls. Alternating thumb with pinch, forward roll, and forward/reverse roll. To see them better have a look at the tab on my website.

    I’m so please you like the lessons! Thanks for the feedback. I’m also very pleased you like free running! We’re going on a backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada mountains this summer. I may be old, but up there i can fly!
