Intermediate Index

Welcome to the intermediate section of the teach yourself method.

This is for people who can already play a bit, or for those who want ideas for exercises and ways to challenge themselves and develop their skills.

This is of course a never ending subject. Many exercises are in preparation and will be activated as and when they are ready. Please keep coming back at regular intervals.

This area will be updated in response to requests and suggestions.
