Experts only? Hmm very nicely played but I'd say more for intermediate players. You are talking about scales and which direction and fingers right? Perhaps a little more detail about the exact intervals used in these exercises. Those were used by Bill Keith a long time ago. They are very nice to hear though. Keep up the good work....Jack  p.s. maybe you could go into the detailed theory of how these fragments and scales were invented and where they came from. That would be advanced to me....

Ricky, these are not only informative, but they are completely hilarious. This is a great study and breakdown of roll patterns. I especially love the alternate middle roll.

@jackbaker The video is about rhythm, not scales. Watch it and let me know what you think

Ok. I'm not sure that your video is about rhythm as much as it is about roll sectioning. But whatever you think it is, it is. I teach Classical and general theory everyday and I guess I have a different way of teaching rhythm etc. It's all good though and thanks for offering this to so many who need it, especially these grim days...Jack

This is the lesson I should have watched when starting to play Bluegrass banjo with my guitar experience. It took me some time to figure this out. Great video!

If you really want to learn about the possibilities of rhythmic modes, study the principles of rhythm of music from the nation of India.
There's a lot to be learned from Latin America also.

Thanks so much for posting what you do. So different than bluegrass but still incredible stuff. This will keep me busy for a long time!

Hey man, it's inspiring to hear you say that. These videos are hard to make, and it's words like yours that make doing them worthwhile
