First, anyone who tell you that it's wrong to study someone else's solo is
misleading you. We all learn by listening to others.  The closer you
listen, the more you learn about someone else's ideas, and the more you
learn about yourself.

Second, which recording of this solo are you talking about?  This live
performance, or something else?


I took a brief listen to this, and what I heard was mostly 2nd position in
the bottom octave and a half of the instrument.  That's as much attention
as I intend to pay to this particular solo--it's not a bad solo, but the
lessons it teaches are lessons I've learned elsewhere.

If the solo excites you, why don't you tab it out for yourself?  That's the
best way to learn more about the stuff that excites you.
