I was wondering what the roll pattern was on the banjo in this video. It like a variant on the forward, but the video is blurry, glosses over the best part of the song, and while I can match the chords, I'm not getting the roll quite figured out on it. Gonna keep practicing at this, but I would still appreciate the advice.
Keep in mind that the FOURTH note in each measure is a QUARTER NOTE and has double the time value of the eighth notes. That quarter note is what gives each measure a bouncy feel when played in the song.
As I stated earlier, keep listening to the midi sound file until you get the feel of the timing. Good luck!
Oh, also, keep in mind that I'm providing you a simplified roll pattern that'll work with this song. A note-by-note transcription of the actual playing takes hours and hours of slow and careful listening, then transcribing each note to a tab-writing program... which I'm not willing to do anymore (I'm too old and no longer have the energy for such endeavors).
