    Hey, SOTW! I made the first video in a series I'll be doing demonstrating the use of guitar pedals with saxophones (or any other wind instrument).

    What's up, SOTW community! Got the third and final video of the series all done, I hope you dig it.

    Hi guys, I was hoping to get into Fusion but it's hard to untangle. What's the essence? Pentatonic? Dorian? For example I'm listening through some fusion numbers, and find it hard to identify what patterns are used. I.E. Sax improvisation from 2:30...
