    Cheers, Fep. I don't think it was anything - just some chords and a bit of lead to demo the Ditto.

    Here's my take on Elle.

    • No improvising. I just played the head followed by the arpeggios (ascending and descending).
    • Backing track: Band In A Box. BPM: 110.
    • This rather simple looking exercise took a great deal of practice for me to get through the 16 bars relatively smoothly, cleanly, and consistently.
    • Like most things I play, it could use more work but I wanted to get something on record before we move to chapter 3.

    I thought that sounded great. The arpeggios played up and down didn’t feel terribly exercise-y to me because your feel is solid. Nice work.

    Nicely done, losaltosjoe. Really clean, lovely tone, and a great feel. G F would be delighted!

    Well played, you are getting a really nice jazz tone. The backing tracks sounds real good too.

    Sounds great, losaltosjoe. Looks like you've got those arpeggios pretty solid... I'd say it's time to let loose and start using them to improvise over the progression if you're not already.
