    Happy New Year, everybody!

    Here's a downloadable etude
    , also in bass clef, based on the changes of Bronislaw Kaper's "Invitation", the same guy who gave us "Green Dolphin Street". Invitation is a great tune to shed Melodic Minor stuff on.

    just wanted to say thanks for putting these great exercises up here. i havent played through any yet, but im a big fan of taking the stuff we've been practicing and then putting it on a tune, and i see that's what many of your etudes do, focus around a central theme. learning the scales, chords, patterns, triad pairs, etc on their own is great, but not worth anything unless you have experience putting them through changes, in time. this was a large part of what charlie banacos had us doing too, with every little exercise we learned.

    Thanks for posting this etude. Easy to print out too. This is back to the shed etude time, along with the John Pattituccci etude book.
