Exercise No. 10 is great for stabilizing the left-hand position needed for playing counterpoint or other multi-voice textures. I have notated the exercise in first position only, remember to practice it up the frets as well. I repeat each pattern up to the 12th fret. The goal here is to gain finger independence. Keep the first note/finger of each group down but only press lightly. The notation can be confusing so check the tab and remember it’s one finger per fret.
