Intermediate banjo roll-Middle Crossover

Here is what I call an intermediate banjo roll that is quite useful for playing melodies on the FIRST string.  This roll is unique in that it starts with the MIDDLE finger and uses the INDEX to play the 1st string as well.  It was made famous by artists such as Don Reno and Allen Shelton.

If you like the sound of this roll, I recommend listening to “Little Rock Getaway” or pretty much any album with Allen Shelton on it; he used it a TON in his backup and lead playing.
