Thirds in G Major No. 5, Op. 1 by Mauro Giuliani
As with the previous study, thirds are excellent for the left hand position. In particular, thirds are a great way to get students to play on their fingertips as it is common to accidentally mute the below string if using poor technique. The exercise is also good for shifts, accuracy, and economy of motion, and finger independence. Practice the thirds as solid chords and also as broken thirds (as written). Play as legato as possible.
