Tonal Techniques For Playing Your Saxophone

The guttural, like the Sound of the Saxophone. That’s what irritated me about the Instrument.

You can replicate Scales and whole Notes with Samples, but You can not imitate personal and unique Saxophonklang, from Notes between Notes exist.

On my first day at the University of Miami School of Music, I heard all my Saxophone Classmates with an awesome Technique of playing, playing faster than I could imagine. After I had the surprise of having, as the good of all, it was clear to me that all are equal in resonance.

This led me to my Research, my personal all in Saxophonsound that led me to the realization that it was not the Number of Notes was, that inspired me. It was the Choice of Notes, Sound, and what I described as “the Notes between the Notes of undernutrition.”King Curtis and Jan Garbarek have been and are my Saxophonhelden. Over the years I have managed all the Information from my Classes and Private Lessons, to collect the Solos that pushed me to listen and transcribe them and use them for my Professional Work on Stage and in the Studio to use.

You can hear, as Clarence Clemmons the Rumble of the on Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory”, demonstrates.”Clarences Sound and the Presence of Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band, for years, trained, and his Solo on”Born to Run” is probably one of the best Rocksoli of all Time.

I like Rocksaxophon Pop songs. The Solo begins in a Pause of the Intensity of the rhythm track. The Solo builds more on with nice Growl in Tone, especially for 3:37 3:42, next to other Places. The Horn brings us back to the Groove and in addition a Pause, before the End it returns for the Melody until their Completion to build.

The poems of the Language

Jr. Walker! Walker Classic “Shotgun”, but let’s stop on Rock and Pop-Head and talk about Foreigner’s Urgent.”

Flatterzunge and Altissimo! It’s Jr. Walker. He plays a melodic Solo, built on himself. You can sing Solo, while the Song and more than Half until the End of the carry.

This is my Saxophonheld King Curtis with the inimitable Aretha Franklin during one of his greatest hits, “Respect.”
