I wanted to write an etude book for some time. I was asked by students about my approach to playing and I thought this would be the best way to demonstrate.
All of these extractions from real solo improvisations. They aren't exactly transcriptions because I would add, subtract or alter some lines/phrases from time to time.
I wanted to write extended etudes that would focus of some developmental solo ideas like melody, space and longer lines.
