Thank you ! It took me a while to get used to playing stood up.. but it took even less time to adjust to letting my shoulders fall naturally toward the floor. Now I find my playing so much more relaxed !

Hi GMC'ers! Welcome to the 3rd lesson in my Legato series. We're following on from part 2 and this time we're featuring 16th note triplets all the way through. This means your speed, stamina and efficiency will be tested and improved !
You've already encountered most of the finger patterns already in the previous lessons so there's nothing unusual for your fretting hand. Also, I've used a basic pattern that sounds more interesting and musical than just 'up and down' scale runs, so once you've learned this lesson, these shapes can be applied to your own playing and used however you want.
We're in A minor for this lesson. Before we were using A Aeolian. As always, start slowly and stay relaxed and keep your touch on the fretboard very light whilst you practice the shapes. Pay attention to your arms and shoulders and make sure they don't tense up, keep them loose.
