example 1 This first example features the phenomenon whereby, when shifting from one string to an adjacent string, the same note is repeated. Here, we’re missing out the middle note on each string within our threenotes-per-string approach, which gives us a modern sound comprising 4th intervals (between the lowest and highest notes on each string). In bar 3, we see a straight descent from the third string down to the sixth using a 2-3-1 unGitUoInTAeaRchTsEtCrinHgN.IrQeUmEeSmMbeArG(fAroZmINEthe2p5re0vious lesson) thSaHtAaUuNn'iSt iCsaREATIVE self-contained digital sequence. In this case 2-3-1 relates to the fact that, of the three pitches on each string, we play the middle note first (2) followed by the highest note (3) followed by the lowest note (1). example 2 In bar 5, a succession of 1-2-3 units are grouped in a 3-3-2 configuration, which helps to provide rhythmic interest. note that, although the contents of bar 6 (a mixture of 3-2-1 and 1-2-3 units) is rhythmically more
it demands more accuracy from the fretting hand.
