I find it great to note the pleasure of discovery as the diatonic system reveals the basic chord/melody relationship in all its glorious simplicity.

Here's a video of the DG version, G and A minor tongue twisters. It's a straight to camera video with some clunks in the middle, but I'm not able to edit video at the moment. I made the mistake a couple of times of trying to watch the image in the camera to make sure it was clear, but that threw my mind on where my fingers actually were. No harm, I think in seeing me struggle.
I hope the intent of the exercises is clear - do ask questions if unsure.
B minor and C exercises next.

And this is another reason to play the G chord with the D on the outside row, because I'm doing the same thing for B minor.
The big difference with the B minor and C chord exercises is that they have only one note on the inside row, and that is the tonic of each chord (B and C). In the G and A minor exercise it was the 5th of the chord that was the only note on the outside.
For B minor and C it helps to embed the tonic position too.
