- Record, write, share your very own rolls! *NEW*
- Background music in a large variety of keys and chord progressions

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.

Fantastic tool for practicing banjo rolls


I was lucky enough to discover this app when it first came out and I was just starting to play banjo it was a huge help to my playing and I couldn't have gotten to where I am without it .

I'm very impressed with the new UI, they are doing a really great job of keeping this application relevant and progressing.

Definitely, worth it!!



Great app! Works great for practicing late nights on the banjo board from Hatfield Music. Wish you could save save the song progression you create in the cords area. I would also like to see the ability to add some additional notes (like "D7" - future update?). Again, Great app!
