Intro to Alternate Fingerings Lesson



In this lessons I introduce you to the concept of using alternate fingerings. Alternate fingerings are a concept that I first learned about when listening to John Coltrane and later Michael Brecker. I would hear them play a series of notes and do something to the sound that I couldn’t understand. Through the years I have learned that what they were doing was to use alternate fingering to effect the timbre and tone of the notes they were playing. I demonstrate the ones that I use the most and give you specific ways that I might use them. I deal with all the notes from middle Bb al the way up to high F and demonstrate everything on the tenor sax.  (Video)
