Watch the Basic 4-Note Roll online guitar lesson by Ben Wright from Bluegrass Banjo for Guitar Players

In this section we'll start with the first finger picking pattern, or roll. This is a 4 note pattern starting with your thumb, then index, back to thumb, then middle. Make sure you take your time with this and keep the timing between the notes equal. Do it slowly and let it set into your muscle memory.
