    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

    I am not a pro but, finally, I have a lot of spare time now to use and apply to my passion so...this book will become a consistent part of my daily training. I can't wait to gather dexterity and confidence and be a better musician for myself first and, then, for the audience and my music mates. More than the contents (that are excellent of course) is the motivation you gave us! That is priceless. Thanks. MJD

    As Epicure said: what happiness!

    I really appreciate the spirit with which you share your passion for music. I love playing jazz but I have little time to practice; with your materials I have the feeling of learning essential things. It's a pleasure to practice my tenor sax with your exercises (sorry for my bad english).
