Jazz Saxophone Etudes, Vol. 2 by Greg Fishman on Spotify

Many jazz guitarists recommend playing horn-based solos and lines, and after spending time in this books, I can see why: The ear naturally “hears” the breaths in musical phrases- it’s unnatural sounding to play long, extended lines of scales on the guitar with no breaks or rests or “breaths in between”. Technically you can do this on the guitar because the guitar is not driven by breath; it will just sound somewhat mechanical. Sax solos have natural breaks in the phrases that help you to learn phrasing.

This also sounds more pleasing to the listener for example, imagine how weird it would be if you had to listen to someone talk and they never took a breath. It helps tremendously when you’re learning the solos. I’d find myself learning chunks of notes, and being able to identify where one phrase ends and another begins.

And so, to me this book is a great way to improve your listening as well as your playing. I hope these author-musicians can do more volumes in the future, this approach is definitely satisfying as well as instructional. One last note, the CD tracks are great.


It’s interesting to hear the subtle differences when a phrase is played on a saxophone versus a guitar. I have a new-found appreciation for saxophone music now. Fantastic jazz lines for guitar!

I love all of Greg Fishman’s books, but as a guitar player this book is the best of all of them. Do yourself a favor and get this book, the lines are musical well-crafted and the notation is excellent. Many jazz improv books have lines that wouldn’t sound good on a gig, but this book is not in that class.

In a similar vein as the Jimmy Raney book that came out years ago, “Jazz Guitar Etudes” bridges the gap in that you are practicing how “semi real solos” are put together, only this was written by a sax player. Since Jimmy was heavily into learning horn parts, the books are very similar on that level My only problem with the book is that it has a number of redundant accidentals Authentic bebop sound etudes, I love it.

I wouldn’t consider myself a musician yet Paired with Greg Fishman’s “Hip Licks for Jazz Guitar,” I’ve found two books that can be used to enliven any hip, funky or jazz solo you might encounter.

The books include tab and CDs with all etudes and licks featured full bands backed on the 1st track by a superb jazz guitarist and another track played by saxophonist Greg Fishman. Note these books are not an easy answer to auto-magically increase your musicality in fortnight. However, I would not want to woodshed without these two books by my side. With these books hopefully your musical journey, like mine, will enjoy a bit more of a pleasant path I’m enjoying the ride!

Hopefully you are as well. One person found this helpful. Terrific etudes built on standard progressions. Great examples of pure swinging bebop phrasing. This book will surely help anyone out. I can’t say enough about this book. I’ve learned that if it has the Fishman name on the cover to just grab it!
