    Default Roll up - what?

    Hi folks, could someone tell me what a roll up is? I watched this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyDOEDQKgR4
    and at 2.37 the player says he is doing a roll up. I keep watching and watching it all ove again, but I still don't get what he is doing. Could anyone explain? Thanks so much!

    Hi, and welcome to UU.

    He is talking about a roll, not roll up.

    He is showing the strumming pattern as down, (down), up, up, down, up
    Substitute the down in parenthasis with down, (roll), up,up,down,up

    A roll is fanning down with your fingers like a Flamenco guitarist. Aldrene is doing some rolls while is demonstrating the chord shapes at the beginning of the video.

    I hope this helps.

    I might not be the only one who doesn't know it yet, so I thought I'd share the link:

    Sounds nice.

    It looks like you're playing the "roll" by leading off with your pinkie? You may also try doing it by leading off with your pointer finger. I find that doing it that way makes the "roll" sound a bit more obvious.

    Cool, I will try rolling by leading off with my pointer finger.
