five guitar position studies, in the form of boppish ii - V - i cadences. the third of the first chord is placed twice on the first string, once each with the remaining notes toward the bridge and toward the nut. similarly for the second string. once only for the third string, with the remaining notes mostly toward the nut. some suggested left hand fingerings are indicated. sometimes an extension or one fret change of position is required.

slurs are not indicated (for cleanness of score), but are appropriate in several places, especially where a neighbor tone returns.

play each in all twelve keys, aim for the tempo appropriate for...say 'i hear a rhapsody' to 'cherokee'.
