-          Tip: If root position IV moves to root position V, upper voices should be in contrasting motion with the bass to avoid parallel 5ths and octaves

-          ii° in minor is most often written in first inversion with the bass (third of the chord) doubled

-          Follow all other voice leading and chord doubling rules.  Remember not to double the leading tone of the key.
