Carulli and a few new Karma Sutra positions - Part 3

Last time we looked at Carulli's neat exercise in fifth position.  Here is his concept of sixth position


As I stated last time, many good players think of the fifth position (fifth fret) as a clean and neat place to play in the keys of A and D major and minor.  This is not bad thinking.  Carulli gives us F Major in fifth position!  It works, it is logical, it is a useful tool to know.

Much the same, when Carulli takes it up a notch to the sixth fret, he winds up NOT in B flat and E flat, but in F sharp! -- like you didn't see that coming.

But wait, there is more to come....
