Nice job, Maria.  Your timing is very accurate, your roll is nice and even.  That's what counts at this point, not speed.  Just keep practicing, and you will gradually see your speed increase.

Thanks guys. Keith - my teacher (John Dowling) tabbed this out for me. I am trying to have a bash at writing it out for you using Tabledit....not going too well at the mo, but if I manage it I will let you know!!

Hey Topcat - any chance we can get a downloadable version of this one (the one posted about 7 years ago)? I'm a beginner, and this seems like a perfect piece to start with... Thanks. I know other versions are downloadable, but this one, for some reason, is not...

Wow, it's been years since I was on here and about the same since I picked up the banjo! I don't mind doing that if it helps you but can't see how I can change the settings to allow it. I don't particularly want to spend loads of time trying to work it out, so feel free to find out if this is possible and if you can post instructions here, then I'll change it for you. Cheers.

Topcat, thanks - I'll see if I can capture it another way.
