The Right-Hand Stuff
 
Danny talks about the other roll he thinks is important to practice and have in your repertoire, the 1 2 1 5 roll. The 1 2 1 5 roll allows you to move a melody up and down the banjo neck on the first string. Danny shows you how to do that on a tune like Alan Munde’s “Deputy Dalton” and how to practice the 1 2 1 5 roll with a metronome. He also shows you a variation that moves the middle-index finger alternation to the second and third strings (2 3 2 5) and third and second strings (3 4 3 5).

Banjonics, Part 1: Exercises 
 
Holding a heavy banjo for an extended period of time can be taxing and even, as you get older, debilitating. In this lesson, Danny shows you a set of physical exercises he’s developed, based on Tai Chi, yogo, and stretching exercises, to strengthen your body. The exercises are designed to be easy, and Danny explains the importance of making sure you never hurt yourself as you do them. There are eight parts and three foot positions. Before going through the exercises, he shows you the three foot positions. Then he explains each part in detail.
