Hello Muris : thanks for your time. I´m practicing the lesson running the Cmajor and Cminor escale by thirds. I have serious doubts about the fingering. I do not want to practice too much just to realize I took a bad fingering habit. I have enough of them... So I will apreciate very much if you may tell me about the EXACT fingering you recomend. I mean specifically in the runs by thirds from the high E string back to the bass strings inthe C mayor run.There are some "tricky" things in the E ,B and G strings I may not understand from the video even if I repeated it 200 times.... thanks in advance.

I know what's the problem and believe me,
when you play thirds in sequences ascending and descending there is no the right fingering,
you should use fingering that feels most comfortable to you.
You can use one finger to fret 2 strings (B and G) or you can slip a finger "bellow" another finger,
do whatever feels more natural to you.
It's the curse of standard guitar tuning where you have perfect 4th interval
between all neighbor strings except B and G, there's major 3rd. smile.gif
