    Relax, focus, build your sound and feel those pentatonics :)

    Very cool exercise :) Right now it is my go-to practice after scales warm-ups and as an ending or pause in every practice session, just to calm myself a little and focus on notes of each chord and pentatonic. I am not a pro musician, but I think it is a great blueprint to develop nice, full sound on saxophone and to not get tired too quickly.

    Peace through Art

    Thank you. I am enjoying the Coltrane pentatonic reminds me of the Melodic Minor approach that I like to use, yet, it has a special Spirit that connects to the tradition of and Spirit Coltrane peace...For anyone who is used to practicing the same thing, the PDF shares lots of cool new horizons to draw ideas from...Thanks for sharing. Peace through music...

    Coltrane meditation

    I have been practising this exercise every day since I received the gift from Nick. It's great for meditation and it's also helping me get more in tune with Coltrane's music.

    Very annoying pop-up on page

    First let me say thank you Nick for making available the two freebies I "purchased" (for $0.00) from you. There's also a pop-up that keeps appearing, asking permission for me to receive offers, etc. That's a web browser notification permission dialog, and I don't accept any of those, from anyone. Asking once is fine, but it keeps popping up on literally every page browse on your site. Cool material, but this one pop-up will likely drive me away. Please fix. And BTW I am using Firefox for my web browser, and it's going to stay that way.

    I listen and practice this meditation in bed, right before I sleep. The increased tonal awareness is a miracle and the suggestive sounds help make learning faster and better. Bonus: I get to sleep better! Thank You

    Coltrane Meditation - Pentatonic on Giant Steps

    Started practicing yesterday. Cool! I transferred the mp3 into Ableton to slow down the song a little more since I'm beginning on tenor but I couldn't sync the tempo to the click track on the slow version. Would you be able to include the tempo info for the songs? I love meditating to your pieces though. Thanks!

    I love to use this as a Warmup just to listen to all the Harmonic reverberances. Gets you in a very nice groove. Lovely

    Amazing music and the additional mp3 files at 2 different speeds was a great help in learning.

    Awesome. Would do it again

    Great eye opener

    Although the primary purpose of this exercise is to follow the patterns given (which are excellent) it is also great aid to move away from the guide and explore the excellent chord choices yourself to see where you end up. Recommended.
