This is Lesson 1 in a series of lessons for the alto saxophone.
In this series, I am focusing on improvising over a 12 bar blues form. I start at the very beginning and teach you how to learn the chords in a blues progression. From there we move on to improvising using one simple blues scale for the whole blues. Once that is mastered, then we put the two concepts together so that you can create 2 bar phrases that sound good and also follow the chord changes. I also show you how to take a melody from my “Mastering the Blues Scale” book and use it through out the blues. This is a great lesson for those of you who want or need some new and fresh ideas to use on a blues. (30 Minute Video Lesson)
