Many slack key teachers start off showing harmonized scales, patterns on two strings ascending/descending through the scale with a melody note and a harmony note. In taropatch the outers are on the first and third string, inners on the second and third.

The scales are also called the "open and closed positions," I think Ozzie uses this terminology but I don't have my book handy.

There are quite a few YouTube videos that demonstrate the idea, here's one: https://youtu.be/WfEk0HH9zGA?t=259

Uncle Harry Koizumi has a lot of slack key tutorial videos on YT, this one demonstrates the "outers" harmonized scale: https://youtu.be/JO4TCqeEQeI?t=241

And here's Harry teaching taropatch chords: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COJahNuLRU8

One more look at the outers harmonized scale: https://youtu.be/g2f3vYfTlHs?t=138

I didn't see the "inners" demonstrated but perhaps you can figure out the harmonization of the 2nd and 3rd strings, using two notes on the same fret or one fret apart (clear as mud, eh?)
