I wanted to start a quick review of some examples taken from Ted's pages on "Diatonic 6ths with Inner Pedals" which are featured new items for October, 2010 (coming soon!).
Some of the fingerings which involve tied or sustained notes need to be worked out, and I thought we could look at them individually. 
Everybody's input is welcomed.
Sometimes there is a single way to finger the chord moves to allow the sustained notes, other times various fingerings can be used.  The trick is to make sure that the tied note is sustained.
Chord names are not included, since they aren't the focus of the exercises. The point is to bring out the moving 6th intervals while sustaining a pedal tone. The resultant individual chords this creates is secondary.

To start with I'm attaching example #2 from p.5 of the lesson page.
How would you finger this example?

Try this:
Grid #1:  3 then 1,4
Grid #2:  add fingers 2, 1 on strings 5 and 3.  Then bend 3rd finger down to get the E on the 5th sting and slide 1st finger up to the C# on the 3rd string.
Grid #3:  1,3,1,2 then add fingers 4 and 3 on the 5th and 3rd strings.
Grid #4:  2,2,2,1 then add 4th finger on string 5, and 3rd finger on string 3.
Grids #5-6:  (similar fingerings as grids #1-2, but in reverse.)

Hi Paul seems the only one I did differently from you, was the #2,  I flattened both the 3rd and 2nd fingers on their respective frets while sutaining the held notes. The second finger might be a bit reluctant but it seemed to work with  bit of practice.

Good call, Tim.  I'll have to work on that.
Okay....here's exercise #3 from the page:

Please give us your fingerings, and chord names if you want.

For Ted's exercise #3
Grid #1:  Finger 3, then add fingers 1 & 4.
Grid #2:  from previous grid hold fingers 3&4, then add fingers 2 &1 on strings 4 &2.  Then for the "X" notes, I slide the first finger up to the 6th fret on the 2nd string.  Yep!  Similarly I slide finger 2 up to the 6th fret on string 4.  This may seem weird or awkward, but it works...I can do it even with big hands.
Grid #3:  1,3,1,4  then add fingers 4,1,3 for the "X" notes.
Grid #4:  Hold the Eb from the previous gird diagram, now add strings 4,3,2 with the 1st finger.  (Duh!)
Grids #5-6:  These are basically the same fingerings as used in grids # 1 & 2 (but in reverse order).

OK.  I can see this isn't a popular thread....and I'll drop these exercises.
