Exercises for playing thirds

Post by Lugosi » Sun Oct 30, 2016 1:55 am


I am looking for exercises to help playing in thirds. Something like Sor Op. 6 no. 6 (segovia 12) where you are playing thirds up the neck but in the form of an exercise. I am familiar with Roch's method and some of the legato thirds he has in there. Any other method book you could point me to would be great.

If anyone has any good exercises for this I'd really appreciate it.

Sor op. 35 #5 seems to be an exercise in thirds.
There's one in every crowd.
