Beginner Jazz Improvisation Lesson 6A-Tenor Sax

(1 customer review)



This is a beginner improviser series for tenor 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 D major scale, the E dorian scale, the A mixolydian scale and the chords that these work over. I also teach you the B blues scale and the D 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 tenor saxophone. (Video & PDF) (32 minutes)

    Great Lesson, as are all the improvisation Lessons!!
    In # 6 Steve gives some great approaches on how to bring the stuff I have learned so far together.
    Every lesson brings a new tool to Practice and brings you to a new level of understanding and hearing. In this lesson it was a lot of repetition until he brings the Major Blues together with the Mixolydian wich boosted my “Groove” : )
