Okay.
Now here's an exercise or a little etude
or
a little example using John Hardy, using
thirds.
[MUSIC]
And we're starting on C and I'll be just
using all these exact same positions we
just used on the first two strings.
And again, this is this'll be using the
Osborne roll.
Middle, index, middle, thumb.
[MUSIC]
Up the
tempo,
it's.
[MUSIC]
Just all using thirds.
[MUSIC]
I sort of have a melody.
[MUSIC]
Oh, and
actually, the second string in this case
[MUSIC]
like.
[MUSIC]
John Hardy was a desperate little man.
[MUSIC]
So you have the note above,
the third above.
[MUSIC]
But
the melody that's actually on the second
string in this case.
[MUSIC]
So that's some thirds,
you can do a lot of exploring around.
It's different things in different keys.
But see what you can do with it.
