  1. Practicing
    Hey all, so after taking a year long hiatus, I'm back to the shed again. I've mostly kept my technique up by practicing EWI and my ears are still good (if not better) from taking up production and mix work. But to no surprise, my endurance is shot. So I'm back to basic breathing exercises and...
  2. Practicing
    Hi, I think that the process of transcribing is one of the most useful to evolve as a player to improve: ear training, technique, rhythm, jazz vocabulary I don't use any software, just my stereo or computer. I press play, pause, sing the melody and then transfer it on the horn. This is how I do...
  3. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Hello, friends. (I really shouldn't post another question until I finish answering the posts on my other threads, but, if you will forgive me, here it goes...) Before sitting down to learn some transcribed solos, I usually like to listen to the solo first, to see if the style even interests...
  4. Playing Songs
    I'm in the process of transcribing one of my favorite solos, and I have everything down except for this fast run part. I try slowing down the recording but then it gets difficult to hear the different notes in the lower registers. I'm wondering how you guys go about this process? Thanks.
  5. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hi, in this video I showed the method that I use to transcribe solos. I filmed my practice session live. The only thing that I did before shooting was learning to sing the entire solo -(a solo by Art Farmer on "it could happen to you") Then I switched on my camera and start my transcribing...

    Hello SOTW! My name is Joe Graziosi and I found this website while hunting down a mouthpiece. I'm excited that the mouthpiece search led me here because this is a fantastic resource and a seemingly good group of people. Anyway, I wanted to share a practice project that I just finished with...
  7. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hello all, I'm transcribing Johnny Hodges "There's something about an old love". Just the sax part but I have all of it except for the fast lick at the end around 40 seconds. Could anybody please help me out with what they think it may be? I know it starts on an A for the long tone then goes...
  8. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    I wanted to get a song from YouTube for an alto sax transcribe was wondering if anyone knew of someone that is legitimate and not over price. Thanks
  9. Practicing
    Transcribing in the digital realm drove me crazy until I figured this out.
  10. Practicing
    A cool, non-music video, inspired this topic. As a jazz musician, it is our task to digest large quantities of musical language and...
  11. Jazz and Improvisation
    So recently I've been getting into a lot of transcribing and have been doing it on both my sax and on the piano. My question is which way is best?
  12. Bb Tenor
    I've been playing saxophone for 7 years. Started on Tenor Saxophone and it has stayed that way. It is my senior year at my high school and as a senior I am allowed to do a Senior Concierto. For my Concierto I want to play "Over The Rainbow" by Richard Elliot. I fell in love with the song when I...
