Careful, deliberate repetition is the crucial step in developing speed. In this lesson I offer advice on how to practice these patterns to make the most of them. Remember that these exercises are not actual solo melodies! They can be used as part of a solo, or in service of a melody, but alone they are just the raw skills, tools and materials out of which you can build better technique and ultimately a good melodic solo!
