Muy buen material

La explicación teórica es muy clara a pesar de mis dificultades con el inglés. Directo, con múltiples posiblidades de uso real, no simples ejercicios, esto permite un salto increible de calidad en la forma de enfrentar una improvisación o componer.

Not sure yet

Haven't had time to sit down and focus however when I did work a little on it, I found myself uncertain as to how to use the material. Maybe a bit more video guidance would be good for me.

Loads of great new things to explore, and I didn't have to learn a new scale!

I'm having so much fun with this. It has given me some great new things to play, given me new avenues to explore. I have already taken some of the ideas and applied them to other songs. Thanks for the inspiration Mark!

This book is a great choice.

Just began working my way through this book and am enjoying the exercises. It helps me to make sense of things I'm used to knowing but have never quite understood musically. Rich variations of Giant Steps gives you a feel for different styles of playing. Great! I recommend it as its pushes (me) forward.

Pentatonic Studies Giant Steps

Un material muy interesante, de verdad, muy buen trabajo. El acabado final es lo que no me gusta, al imprimirlo en bastantes páginas los pentagramas se quedan muy pequeños, un poco difícil de leer, sin embargo hay suficiente espacio en blanco para poderlo haber hecho más grande. Añado unas fotos para que se me entienda
