    Johnnie. I love what you did with Time is Tight song and purchased it. In last half of the song you have three or four instances where you add improv notes that sound great. I am having a hard time matching them and I’ve never seen you do this before on your other songs -that is to play notes that are not on the sheet music. If possible can you please provide what those notes are? Thanks in advance. Don in Florida


    Thanks Don, yes that’s a great instrumental to play on sax, really enjoyed doing that one!
    Most of those kinds of fills on tunes like that I just use the pentatonic scale…real easy, only 5 notes and we don’t need to use em all!

    Go thru my interactive ear training exercises I do here and you’ll then be able to pick off those simple fills near the end there:
