Simple Songs on One String

Simple and familiar tunes can be played on one string. By focusing the student on the song, the student's mind is freed and shifting starts to happen more naturally. Try playing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" or "Happy Birthday" starting on the note E on the D string. All on the D string, and all with 1st finger. Repeat this activity using different fingers.
