Now we're going to stay in
second position, but show you some
of the arpeggios that you can find.
And they're major and minor triads,
and some are in inversions too.
So we're gonna start in this little,
this area of second position.
And see how many we can find.
And I'm gonna show you the exercise once,
and you have it printed, and
you can work on it too.
But it has the fingerings written in,
but I'll do it slowly for you, okay?
Here we go.
Starts off, it's in three four,
we'll do it very slowly.
And it's starts off with A minor.
So A minor's right here.
