I know, I know, this is a long one but I had to end the phrase properly like he does. A lot of takeaways on this one. The small line he repeats is a great one to have in your tool belt. Also, how he gets out of it by going up to the b7 of the F7 sound amazing too.

Obviously the parts in the middle work very well but I particularly enjoy that last two measures of how he resolves his line with the dyads moving the bottom note down while the top F stays the same, enjoy!


Make sure to take bits and pieces of this one and practice them separately.
