4.3 Switching Chords Using The Forward Roll video

Tunefox Banjo Lesson #4

One of the best things you can do when learning new techniques is try them out in different contexts. Here, you'll learn how to switch chords while playing the forward roll.

Remember when you're switching chords hover your left hand fingers over the frets you want to push down. To practice accuracy play slow so you can give yourself time to think about what's going on in both hands. It's a lot! Be patient with yourself and trust your own pace when learning new skills. Everyone learns at different speeds. The most important thing is that you're enjoying yourself (and playing cleanly with good time.)
