The exercises that are featured on the previous pages only involve single notes. On this page exercises are presented in which two or three notes are played simultaneously. The emphasis is on the coordination of the right hand, but also a new left hand technique is introduced.
Try to avoid touching the fifth string with the fingertip, also during position changes, as this would mute the string. It is recommended to first get used to the rhythm by playing it on open strings, before including the left hand.
Each of the string pairs in this fragment is played with the index and middle finger. As the sixth string is not played it can be used to increase the stability of the right hand by letting the thumb rest on this string.
Notice that the indicated left hand fingering is meant to enable one to increase the sustain of the notes, compared to a fingering in which each finger would be devoted to only one fret position.
A different left hand position is required in each bar, but throughout the individual bars no left hand changes are needed.
