Linear playing studies

1022 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  guido
the single greatest thing i notice that is missing from my playing is the ability to play solid linear lines (moving effortlessly from one scale to the next in a vertical fashion).

Right now i'm working on the contour lines section of Dennis Taylors Amazing phrasing and some various transcriptions that "fit the title" but other than that are there any books or online studies that have helped your line playing?

This is proving to be the hardest thing for me as I've always had a blues or R/B background and always been more of a "lick player"

any help is very much appreciated

J.S. Bach. Two part inventions translated for sax or even just get a keyboard or violin book. Studying these materials will open up how to make linear lines flow.
