The Banjo Rolls Trainer is a library of essential banjo rolls which will help make your playing sound fresh, authentic, and professional.

"So if you’re working on learning the rolls and how they relate to what the rest of the band does, or looking for an audio tool to help plug away at the right hand exercise, this could be a great tool for you."
-Kyle Tuttle, Banjo Newsletter Magazine

With this app, you can hear and practice your rolls with a backing band!

The "Speed Up" function automatically increases the speed of the metronome after a set number of bars. You can master speed without even blinking an eye.

Banjo Rolls Trainer features more than 30 built-in banjo rolls, variations, and exercises. Video demonstrations and text explanations help provide an in-depth understanding of all the right hand techniques. Clawhammer Bum-Ditty and ¾ rolls are included!

Create your own exercises for spicing-up your practice routine.

This is a must have for any beginner/intermediate student of the banjo, and can be a great practice aid for any level, so get it now!

Font color needs to be white.

I didn’t even notice the sections had labels because the font is dark grey and the background is black. Change the font color to white. Otherwise it’s a perfect layout. Congratulations!

Great for learning

This is great. Let's you specify the chords you want to play using the specific roll you want to learn. It allows you to configure it to animate the notes as it plays. Wish it would do the same thing to the chord list so you can follow long songs and know what chord to play next. I learned to hardly ever fret the 5th string but this program frets it frequently for certain chords. Not sure that I like that. Would like a setting that lets you learn rolls without using the 5th string.
