Hi , Thankyou so much for your video posts Im studying for my ABRSM Grade 6 Exam and these have been more useful than all my books.

I have a couple of questions:

In Example 2 ( Part writing first inversion chords) , when moving from IV - V ( Maj 2nd ) you move the E from CMajor up to an F# even though you said in your video that when moving in Maj 2nds you should always move all voices in contrary motion to the bass , is there a reason for this? or an exception to this rule?

I Also noticed that you doubled the Major 3rd when you go from from CMajor ( IV in G) to Dmaj (V) - I have been advised to be cautious about doubling the minor 3rd and generally Not to double the major 3rd - How could you advise on the above example , is there an exception to this rule ?

Many thanks
