      Hi guys!

      I’m new to playing ish and on this site and loving it!

      I’m part of a band who are playing along to slow burn by kacey musgraves. The banjo picking is very faint but effective! Its in the key of AM but the banjo player plays with the capo on the second fret? I’m just alternating thumb rolling through the chords with sounds ok but a bit repetitive..

      See the banjo player at around 34 seconds..

      Can anyone help?

      Sorry for the delay in response.

      Looks like the main chords are Em, G, D, A.

      I wouldn’t play this song with a capo personally. With a capo on 2nd fret the chords would be Dm, F, C, G.

      The alternating thumb roll would work well as well as the forward-reverse roll.

      You could do some basic 2-4 slides on the 3rd string over the Em and G chords to add some easy licks to break up the rolls.

      If you’re still having trouble let me know.

      – Mike
