Practice Major Thirds on the Guitar
Remember, the goal is memorization. Not only will your fingers memorize the positions of the major third intervals, your ears will also memorize the sounds on the guitar called Ear Training, so make sure your guitar is in tune. You can tune your guitar by ear to the midi player by clicking the tune logo or tune by eye using an electronic guitar tuner. It is recommended that you learn both methods.
