A Google search on "cut roll" yields links to sushi, labels and
stickers, film, and chicken sandwiches. This may not mean anything.
"Cut roll" to me would signify, if I thought about it, that
you're adding a cut before the roll. If, as a lobotomized fiddler, I
wanted to do this on, say, B, then I'd play (d)B(d)B(A)B, or mash in a c
instead of the second d to cover all my bases. If you catch my drift.
I know I've heard plenny of excellent lobotomized fiddlers do
this. Having no brain, I can't recall their names just now.

(Thank God I've missed most of this.)
