This is not just another book crammed full of jazz, rock and blues patterns and exercises. After 30 years of playing professionally as a TV and recording artist, (with such names as Elton John, Sting, REM and Joe Jackson), Pete Thomas has collected and invented an enormous inventory of stuff to practise, and has managed, by a gradual process of elimination, to sort out the most useful and distill them into this 140 page book. Also included is a whole section (with exercises and tips) on breathing, sound and tone production.
"There are so many to choose from, but I have ended up with a collection of those that I think are the most useful for technique and (more importantly) really creative performance. This is the stuff that I actually still practise every day - there's unlikely to be a sequel - this is literally my ultimate collection!"
