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).

In this lesson, Danny shows you an original tune of his called “Isotope 709.” It has two parts, and the second part has an interesting chord progression: Bm–D7–F–G–Bm–D7–G. Danny shows you the chords and plays the tune all the way through at a very slow tempo as well as at the normal speed. He also talks about improvising on the unusual chords in the B part by finding the common notes between the chords.
