Example1B ascending and descending in 6ths
cd track 62
Example 1b ascends and descends our position 1 C Lydian mode in 6ths. Keep the hand position square and dropped with the thumb in the middle of the back of the neck and concentrate on clean note separation by releasing each digit at the same time as the next note is played. Careful positioning of the first finger, with its tip set to mute off the lower adjacent string as well as all higher strings underneath will also help eliminate any dissonance. Once memorised, try playing through the first example again, this time replacing the 6ths with 5ths.
