Flat 3rd scales will ask you to change things up a little. The spacings go from one half step to a step and a half, while being one of the few scales to contain three notes in three half steps, so you will have to use a combination of big stretches and smaller one finger per fret techniques.

Diatonic  Triad Cascades

All of Uncle Tim's eBooks are constructed using the Circle of Fifths

The Circle of Fifths

When you use any of Uncle Tim's eBooks you will always progress through each key by way of the Circle of Fifths. This is how music is created using a key based approach and these chords are created by applying the rules of theory to the key of C major using Uncle Tim's unique visual method.

The Circle of Fifths starts out with the key of C major and proceeds by building each scale. We progress through the same sequence when creating cascades based on the scale. This is a very good way to tie this information into other information about each key that you already know. So you can expand your knowledge and begin to tie everything together.

And these triad cascades offer excellent practice for finger gymnastics. They go nicely with scale practice too.
