Things to keep in mind when going through these exercises
Be aware that no written exercises are perfect. Depending on your instrument and your experience, you might want to extend down to the bottom of your range and further up into the higher ranges.
After a while, you shouldn’t need the written page so much. But if you do, and you want to get more familiar with reading those notes and getting used to playing them, then you might want to write out some of these exercises going up into the higher notes – custom designed for what you want to accomplish.
Remember these are shown here as a basic guide and should help you get the core of this stuff down – both off the page and by ear. And that is the goal of the whole exercise anyway – playing by ear – to improvise.
