This is a basic right hand warm-up that incorporates the Home Position in a rhythmic context. Each line has four measures. In the first line, play 3rd string with your index-finger followed by a pinch on the 1st & 5th strings with the middle finger and thumb. In the third and fourth measures, play a 3-1-5 pattern 4X ending a 3rd string and a 1&5 pinch. The second line is identical except the second string is played instead of the third string. The third line (last 4 measures) use the index finger to alternate the third and the second strings with the same pattern.
