I learned some Bluegrass style banjo this weekend! I relentlessly practiced forward rolls and reverse rolls. I just used my fingers though, no picks, never could get used to them darn finger picks; someday, maybe... Anyway, I basically just found a bunch of stuff on-line that had the patterns tabbed out. So much for basic instructional books; I think the Internet has just about quashed the market on beginners instrument instruction booklets. I'd be interested in what publishers have to say. I wonder if Mel Bay is sweating the Internet revolution???
