The Right-Hand Stuff, Part 1: The Forward Roll
The engine of the banjo is the right hand, but as players advance, more attention is often paid to the left hand. On the banjo, if you have a good feel in the right hand, anything you play is going to sound pretty good. In this series of lessons, Danny looks at the right-hand and gives you advice on getting a good rhythm with your right hand. He starts by looking at a couple of rolls that are good to know, the forward roll and the 1 2 1 5 roll. In this video, he concentrates on the forward roll, showing you how to practice it with a metronome and get your rhythm smooth and even.
