Hints on Minuet: This is a pretty simple piece appropriate for beginning players. Other than going up the neck during certain parts, it stays in first position throughout. There are many five string chords in this piece that require the right hand thumb to pluck two strings together. To do this simply rotate the thumb so that you pluck two adjacent strings at once. Connecting the eighth notes is crucial in making the piece flow smoothly. Always master the piece in a slower and steady tempo before trying to play it in a faster speed.
