Thanks William! I took it down originally because something squirrelly happened to the link on YT. Had to correct it. It was up for such a short time I really didnít know if anyone had a chance to check it out. That Bosp. Ride on my right is so thin itís incredible. Like the Agops, those are a joy to play.

Thanks for watching! Again, those particular Bosphorus cymbals are relatively new and are pretty thin for their line which makes them perfect for playing this style of music.

The book is a great one and Iím just now making my way through it. Just glancing at the solos, they appear to the eye as not too difficult since thereís not a gazillion notes. Though, once you try to play them, there are spots in each of them that make them incredibly challenging Ė at least to me.

I think I need to check out that book. I actually have his other one with a Sid Catlett etude, Max, Art, Elvin, Tony, and a few others. I really need to dig that out...
Thanks Brady! Yes, I actually went through the book you are referring to with him. I continue to work on the Tony solo at various periods. I donít have the left foot speed demanded in that one. Very hard for me to do. This new one of his is a gem as well. To me it's more difficult than the first book.

Thank you for watching and the comments. That part is all true Roy Haynes. He had a unique and amazing way of using the hi-hats.
