Etude In C Major

This is a neat little piece that utilizes both right & left hand technique. It repeats itself in a sly manner that helps build dexterity in the left hand, and independence in the right hand fingers. I recommend to play all notes on the 6th, 5th, & 4th strings with the thumb, while trying different finger patterens for the treble strings using the i, m, & a fingers. I have set the tempo at 170, this may a be a bit fast for some, perhaps not fast enough for others. This is one of those studies that sounds better the faster it is played. However, like any song, it should be mastered at a slow tempo before increasing. Things get just a little tricky in measures 15-24, but practice at a slow tempo will help on this portion.
