I woke up this morning to this question in my inbox:
Could you please confirm which video(s) concern "roly polys”?
Thank you in advance,
I figured more than one person might be wondering this very thing, so here is the rundown:
- The main roly poly video is Kickstart Your Jamming. That is for using them in the key of G. It has the basic version along with some upgrades toward the end.
- They also make a brief appearance, in their simplest form, on two songs on the New Beginning Banjo series (Blue Ridge Cabin Home and Bury Me Beneath The Willow).
- For using them in the key of C (and D and E) look at Key of C and Beyond.
- For using them in 3/4 time (key of G) look at Improvising in 3/4 Time.
In the future we will probably record a video on how to use them up the neck. That's something we've done with all of our in-person and camp students.
