A definition "the melodic figuration" is used in this textbook in the direct meaning as a construction of the melodic figures and phrases. A sequence (from Latin "sequentia" - a succession) - is a device in the musical composition which comes to a consecutive repetition of the given melodic phrase or a harmonic turnover at different pitches. A complete implementation of a sequence turnover is called "a segment". Simply speaking sequences are a method for rendering scales, triads, seventh chords and pentatonics. This part is devoted to these exercises. One octave scales and two octave pentatonics are given in duplet (a sequence segment of four notes) and triplet (a segment of three notes) variants. Pictures in this part show "paths" in which the sequences move, fingerings are given in tabulatures and set off in red. The absence of red numbers means that a sequence moves in accordance with a principle of a position (every finger on its own fret). This way one octave Major and Minor scales and two octave pentatonic sequences move. Sequences are a fertile material for the construction of musical phrases.
Sequences of one octave scales are a melodic "cliche", if we continue such sequence, we will get a melody at a higher pitch octave. At the beginning it is better to pay strict attention to the rendering of one octave sequence. As its fluent performance is achieved you should start two octave sequence.
