Just play lightly and everything is going to be OK!: Legato third

Updated: Jan 22

Practice playing third intervals smoothly


Phrases with a series of thirds are very common, but to play them lightly and legato requires a special technique. Here’s the idea. After playing the first third (say right hand C and E, played together with 1 and 3 fingerings), then hold E while you raise the other finger from C; then play D and F together. Watch the video to see how it done.
