Just in case Wolhlfahrt isn't tedious enough, here are 112 exercises in melodic patterns, recommended to amp your improv - to be done in each key.

This link takes you to the intro - the 112 practice patterns links are listed at the bottom of the page. Translate to all 12 keys on your own...

Strange, the address didn't work for me until I omitted the "/index.html" on the end of the address.

Dang, that doesn't work either now.  I looked at that soon after you posted it, and it looked, to say the least, useful.  Maybe I can find a similar page if somebody can mention the term for this technique. 

Do I recall that the essence was to simply transpose a phrase by some number of scale degrees?  Or was it a transposition by some number of semitones?

Hmmm, somehow that site is working again now. 

It seems to be transposition by a number of scale degrees.

Okay, I just did the two-note-two-scale-degree example that he gave--for the G-major scale.  Just 112x12 minus 1 to go.  Oh but I guess I should do it for all seven modes too.  Okay that is 9408 exercises, but I already finished one!

Hmmmmm.

ZENTAO 112 PATTERNS:

Try copying the link to a new browser window. I did a copy and paste from the message above, to a new window, and the proper page loaded. Once you get this page, read the usage intro and there are more links to the 112 at the bottom.

http://www.zentao.com/guitar/patterns/

Please let me know if this doesn't work! On the weekend, I can scan my printouts to pdfs and find a download place to share more easily. I am so sorry its not working for folks!!!!! I'm getting a lot out of them so far.

FRANZ WOHLFAHART Etudes:

The Wohlfahrt mentioned can be found and downloaded from two links on Fiddlerman's menu drop down from this site page:

SHEET MUSIC -> FREE VIOLIN STUDIES ETUDES AND SOLOS....

scroll down thru all the music to find two links on the lower part of the right column by Wohlfart, Franz.

I copied the link to them here:

http://fiddlerman.com/studies-.....nd-etudes/

These are totally the money as well.

Just a practice thing I like to do with the patterns... I find it useful to sing them. At least a few of the starting phrases. Helps my ear "set".

I don't sing the Wohlfahrt - just grind thru. b-slap

Keep trying.  It works for me sometimes and sometimes not.

I emailed the contact address on the web page letting them know something is wrong.

The link keeps asking for a password & user name. I tried the one for this site but that doesn't work.

This might help others who can not access the site...

I was able to enter the user name & password that was listed on the pop up screen asking for this information to enter the site.

Thanks Tamlin

I wasn't aware that some users were having trouble logging in. I would appreciate more details. The username can't be changed by the way.

He's talking about the link to zentao.com
