This is a great introductory etude for slurs and the four-finger position (one finger per fret). This etude is the second etude in the book focusing on basic legato phrasing and slur technique before progressing to more difficult etudes. You’ll want to gain a handle on the basic slurs first and a good left hand position before moving on. See video for clarification.
