Banjo Rolls Trainer for your iOS deviceThanks to John Lawless for sharing this interesting article!
Jiri Marlalous is a Czech banjo player and app developer who has merged his two passions in Banjo Rolls Trainer, a practice aid available for Apple iOS devices.
“I’m a banjo player myself, and I couldn’t find an application or any interactive tool for help practicing banjo rolls, so I got an idea to create it itself.Practicing with a metronome isn’t fun, so I said myself that it would be better to play with accurate background music, and hear how the rolls should sound.”
Other features include:
- Variable metronome speed
- Speed up feature that will increase the speed after a user-selectable number of repetitions of each roll
- Volume of banjo, bass, guitar and metronome can be adjusted or turned off
- Playback can be set for G, C, or D chords, or changing from one to the other
