Structure extension of the triads
This series of exercises allows for the develpment of the fingerings using a group of three strings spread over a set of four strings. The fingering of each chord is made up of 2 adjacent strings plus one seperate string. In the first exercise we play the key of C major, using the second, fourth and fifth strings for each of the chords. Within each triad, the respective steps are the I, the V, the III and again the V.
In the next exercise, which is much more demanding to play, we will use two sets of strings: sixth, fifth, third and the fourth, third, first. The relationship of the steps remains the same.
