use of the 3rd finger in a fiddle roll
After years and years of practing I still have problems with the timing of my 3rd finger in rolls on the 1st and 2nd finger. Especially on the lower strings I have a tendendy to roll 1st finger rolls 1-2-1-0 instead of 1-3-1-0. The 2nd finger is absolutely quicker, especially for the more explosive stuff. Does anyone of you recognize this?
Harder for me to get a grip on is the 2nd finger roll; I am considering to start executing the roll as 2-3-0-2 (is this ‘allowed’ at all??) instead of the usual 2-3-1-2. It’s hard to make a well timed, well articulated roll whith use of the 3rd finger while keeping the 1st down.
