Edited: August 11, 2017, 1:09 AM · One other source I'll mention: Sevcik Op. 1 Parts 1 and 2 have some very nice chordal etudes. They incorporate chords with scale-like passages. Excellent. Not surprising, when you consider that Sevcik was a student of Dont.

Do slurred arpeggios: our intonation often goes awry across the strings.
