I first saw your page on YouTube and as you played this exercise, like the rest of aspiring saxophonist that are out there trying to improve their skills but don't know how to or where to start, this tool will definitely get your wheels spinning and instantly blew me away in a good way. In laments terms: this exercise is part of my practice routine. In the beginning, I struggled very mightily. I couldn't get hold of the tempo and it was going real fast for me. Once I plugged you in the Amazing Slowdown App and printed out the material, I was amazed on how quickly I can pick up each build in line and now I am at the point to play it in displacement, trying to break it down in all 12 keys, and also swapping and combining lines (for example: I combined lines 15 and 18 to give it a full up and down feel) and thats just one combo out of the many combos the saxophonist can choose out of the 27 lines you built. Yes I am looking into more of your programs. I was definitely feeling the John Coltrane Triad Pairs Exercise that your folks advertised. Im thinking about grabbing that one and it was also a few more programs of yours that I can not remember that had my ears like (explosion). Keep up the great work and for those who are reading this review, stop procrastinating and get on the ball or else you'll be like me wishing I had this knowledge 20 years ago. Happy playing and see yall next time.
Hi Alan! Thanks for you appreciation! And thank you for taking the time for writing this review. It makes us very happy to know that you are benefiting so much from this material.

An old saying from Confucius 551 BC. Quote: ''When the student is ready to learn the teacher appears''.Being a musician most of my life.One of the most important things is to listen to everyone that can inspire you.Even if you have heard it all before.As time goes by someone will inspire you to think another way or an apporach to view it.These studies will help you to create other possibilities .Have fun.
Love the fact that that it’s written in bass clef as well~ thank you
I have only had this Digital Download for a week and I am already noticing a change in my practice habits. The systematic approach spelt out in this deceptively short book will require me to put in many more days/months of practice before I have it under my fingers. However, it has already helped me to understand how to take my vamp soloing to the next level. The text is clear (and clear-sighted) and the funk play-a-longs are extremely useful. Bravo!
I’m a “living room” Jazz guitar player and your work is an inspiration. I use your approach as a first step to my own solo creations. In all honesty, I do not read music and it is quite a challenge to decipher some of the work. However, the phrasing exercises are attainable when one takes the time to listen carefully and practice! Thanks and keep us Jazz guitar players in mind. Regards,
