Hi guys,

Here's a clip from the An Dochas CD "Dragonfly." This is the first few seconds of Legacy Jig, I believe.

There's about 8 bars of intro, then the whistle starts. My questions is, what are the mechanics of that little thing they do on that first note? I think maybe it's called a roll, but I've never paid much attention to the terms.

Can anyone please explain to me how this is done?

thanks,
Kitty

Yes, that is a roll and so is the next 3 notes.

For the G roll sound G rapidly lift and replace the ring finger, then "pat" the bottom index fimger (or close the whole bottom hand is my current favorite as it gives a bit of a "bump" to it).

The cut and pat notes aren't critical since it is a rhythm thing rather than a tune thing.

For learning rolls, I suggest learning the top hand rolls first as they are the hardest.

Rolls.
