My question is if you guys can suggest some alternative (easy) ways to perform reverse banjo style rolls on guitar using hybrid picking.
I've already got a good handle on how to do them without a pick, and I've also been practicing using a pick the "Danny Gatton" way (as demo'd in his Licks and Tricks video), but was wondering if there are any other (easier and efficient) ways to do them.
I've already spent hours practicing them Danny's way and it does seem the most practical, but I'm not progressing as fast I'd like to be.
so maybe there's another way ???? ........... (or is there) ?
best way I've found is gatton's method, I'm interested to see what others might say, you can always look up actual banjo roll patterns and adapt them to guitar, just a thought
basically just practice all variations, say 1 is the pick, 2 is middle finger, and 3 is ring finger. start 1 2 3, then 2 3 1, 3 1 2, 2 1 3, and so on, there's a million different ways.
