Painting Grooved Siding

I have applied "SmartSide" Panel Siding on an 8 x 8 shed. The siding has 1/2" wide grooves 8" on center running vertically. I am planning on painting the siding using a roller. Do you have any recommendations on how to paint inside the grooves (other than by hand with a brush!)? Thanks!!!

Use a large nap, 1 1/4" or bigger, and roll it fast to keep it fluffed up.

Or, you could buy one of these to hit the grooves first, then come back and roll the facings.

As PWG said use a long nap roller cover. I always slop the paint on the panels making sure everything is covered and then lightly reroll [before it sets up] everything to make it look nice.
