Watch the Outrun The Train online guitar lesson by Ladd Smith from Modern Nashville Guitar

You'll notice the hammer-on with the banjo roll, this roll has a very specific pattern. I find it very helpful to make an effort to reverse, invert and switch up your banjo rolls in order to gain more fluidity, it helps open things up so much. I also talk about how I still think in terms of basic chord shapes (chords below the 3rd fret) when describing phrases and chords further up the neck in other keys, it really does help to keep things simple when you can say "it's like a D triad, but up here on the 10th fret" or whatever. There's a fine line we all walk between doing what is most comfortable for you, what comes naturally, fingering or style wise - and being open-minded and pushing the envelope of your playing by forcing yourself to learn and practice a different style or weird fingering than you may be used to. It's a good habit to get into.
