Natural Harmonics Exercises 1-3

Exercises 1-3

Hints: You must develop the ability to play harmonics with any fingertip of the left hand, which these exercises address. Practice them in order, and always strive to have clear tones when playing harmonics. After mastering these exercises try to play two harmonics at the same time in adjoining strings by flatening the left hand finger so that it touches over two strings at once. Play harmonics together on the 1st and 2nd, 2nd and 3rd, 3rd and 4th, 4th and 5th, 5th and 6th strings. After that, play around with other possibilities, like the 1st and 6th strings at once, etc.
