There is tons of material in this book for you to discover. Be bold, be strong. I can throughly recommend a look at some of the 3/8 exercises towards the back. These are great played across 4/4 and make very good solo material.
Don't take this book, or any book for that matter, at face value. Read between the lines and see what else is there, you could be very surprised at what you find!
Use your imagination, that way, what you find and what you have to say will be yours and your identity.
Have fun, and good luck.
If I can be of any help with this or any other problems, please feel free to contact me.
