Various exercises of rhythmic division.

This series of exercises is very useful in obtaining good control of the right hand. For those who are having some doubts, it is best that you review the previous pages. Remember that you can listen to every exercise through the relative midi-file, which is recorded using two chords, C Major in the first bar and the G major in the second.
You should try to work using as many chords as possible, with one for each bar and repeating the exercises. Remember that in Soundme there is a section devoted to the fingering of the chords and, for those who need it, a section devoted to the study of the barrč chord.
