Watch the Alternating Thumb Roll online guitar lesson by Ben Wright from Bluegrass Banjo for Guitar Players

A play-along exercise for the alternating thumb roll. Throughout all these exercises you should make sure your right hand has at least one finger on the head of the banjo. I use both my index and my middle but some schools of thought say you should only use your pinky. Choose whichever feels the most comfortable.
