In lieu of a small parenthesis, a superficial analysis of the minor scales is in order (see Preface on Public Space).

Further examples and exercises in minor Thirds:

To familiarize further with the sound of the minor Third, listen to the opening phrase of Scarlatti’s Sonata K.213:
Scarlatti - K.213 (opening phrase).jpg
Detect and play the minor Thirds in the opening phrase of Segovia’s Remembranza:
minor Third - Remembranza - Segovia.jpg
The minor Third played linearly (on the same string) and as chords:

Strictly adhere to the chosen strings which determine the fingering patterns to be absorbed:

THIRDS – Aguado” revised:

Before you tackle this, you may want to revise the various patterns for both Major and minor Thirds.
