    This is a great way to learn to read! It starts with major triads, root, third, and fifth. (Triads are line-line-line or space-space-space in treble clef.) Then you just repeat the pattern on the other chords. It's the same pattern for each chord, and the rhythms (early on, anyway) are the same. So it's really ideal for starting to read music!

    Sounds good - i have been going over the history on this thread, so basically, you are just repeating the pattern
    through all notes of the chromatic scale - starting on the 6th string, so is this like 'Arpeggios' where you are sounding out the notes of the chord?

    Thanks

    The first 28 exercises are arpeggios moving through four different root cycles (minor seconds, major seconds, minor thirds, fourths).

    There is nothing dictating where you play the patterns on the fingerboard. I'm working with 3 string sets (EAD, ADG, DGB) and different starting fingers for each set of drills. It's really up to you how you want to go through this stuff.

    As far as reading goes, even if you just played everything straight eighth notes, you'd still get a lot out of running the root cycles.

    Here are the fingerings I'm using for major 2nds in 7th and 8th position. I've decided to stick with non-stretch fingerings for this weeks work.

    For the octave C and Db arpeggios, I ascend with fingers 4 3 2 and descend with fingers 1 2 3

    Thanks, think i have a grasp on the basic idea- sounds like this is not a strict thing, as long as you play the correct notes,

    im reading the 1st pattern as C E G C G E C
    so i can start 8th fret low e string,
