For Musicians:

I have a backlog of transcriptions that I will be posting.  Also check out the Blog page for thoughts on writing, playing, practicing, and listening to music.


 

Transcriptions:


Many more to come, but to start here are a couple of perfect Lester Young blues choruses that are good for students (or anyone!).

Lester Young: Countless Blues  Bb   Eb  C  youtube (starts at 1:10)

Lester Young: Boogie Woogie  Bb   Eb  C  youtube (starts at 1:39)

Etudes:


Here is one of a book of Etudes I am working on.  The concept is to emulate guitaristic arpeggios in the style of blues/country artists like Mississippi John Hurt, Bob Hadley, and Bob Dylan, and apply these shapes to monophonic saxophone lines.
