Beginner Jazz Improvisation Lesson 6A-Alto Sax



This is a beginner improviser series for alto sax.  In this series of lessons I will take you from the very beginning and teach you how to improvise.

In this lesson 6A, I will teach you about the A major scale, the B dorian scale, the E mixolydian scale and the chords that these work over. I also teach you the F# blues scale and the A Major Blues scale and show you how to use those over a variety of grooves. I teach you how to use each of these scales to come up with material to play over the Aebersold play alongs.  I spend a lot of time talking about hearing the resolution points within each scale and chord and what to listen for when improvising.

My goal with these series of lessons is too teach you all the basic chords and scales in every key and get you improvising in a fluent way over some common jazz standards.  I demonstrate all the material on my alto saxophone. (Video & PDF) (35 minutes)
