I had a viewer ask for a lesson concentrating on guitar rolls a couple weeks back, so I thought I would do a little close-up lesson on how they are performed.
Rolling can be a little difficult to get your head around at first because it seems that if we collapse the tip joint of a fret hand finger, it goes against everything we have been told before. But this collapsing, no matter how unnatural it may feel at first, is essential to be able to play notes within the same fret on an adjacent string quickly.
There isn't any PDF download for this lesson, since I assume that you can follow along with the beginning of the video. Then, if you need to refresh on your pentatonic scale forms that I use to create some exercises for you to practice with, just download the pentatonic scales PDF from the Intermediate Scales Section on the Lessons Archive page. 🙂
Have Fun Everyone!!
