3rd Pattern

Like the first patterns we stay in the keytone A. And the third
pattern on the fingerboard looks like this:

 9   10  11  12   13

Practise: Play the pattern from the the high E-string to the low E-string and back

e |------------------------------10-12-|-12-10------------------------------|
H |------------------------10-13-------|-------13-10------------------------|
G |-------------------9-12-------------|-------------12-9-------------------|
D |-------------10-12------------------|------------------12-10-------------|
A |-------10-12------------------------|------------------------12-10-------|
E |-10-12------------------------------|------------------------------12-10-|

Now you know the first three patterns. Practise them, until you can
play them easily and smoothly!

Practise: Move the patterns on the fingerboard into other keys!

Now we take a look how the patterns can be connected on the fingerboard:

1 = Notes from Pattern 1
2 = Notes from Pattern 2
1/2 = common notes from Pattern 1 and 2.
3 = Notes from Pattern 3
2/3 = common notes from Pattern 2 and 3

    5   6   7   8   9  10  11  12  13
e |-1-|---|---|1/2|---|2/3|---|-3-|---|
B |-1-|---|---|1/2|---|2/3|---|---|-3-|
G |-1-|---|1/2|---|2/3|---|---|-3-|---|
D |-1-|---|1/2|---|---|2/3|---|-3-|---|
A |-1-|---|1/2|---|---|2/3|---|-3-|---|
E |-1-|---|---|1/2|---|2/3|---|-3-|---|

Practise both patterns alone and in connection on the fingerboard!
