Hey, folks

I just posted the first two of four videos presenting the very basics of overtone production, intended for sax players who have never tried (or even heard of) overtones — but ought to know about them. :)

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ager431_kN0&feature=channel
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOhmDYfbcD8

These videos are actually all 1 lesson, but I sliced into shorter segments as is more consistent with YouTube viewing patterns.

Highlights of parts 1 & 2:
. basic demonstration of overtones
. basic explanation of overtones
. close-up shots of embouchure & throat
. introductory discussion of the mechanics of producing overtones
. only uses the fundamental and 1st harmonic (octave)

*

Do you have a different way of thinking about, explaining, or producing overtones?

*

best wishes,
~ Rick

Great videos. I already know about overtones, but it did actually remind me that going back to the basics can always be helpful. Very nice stuff. I tend to sing the notes without actually singing. My throat gets in position and then I know it's time to play. Thanks again for the great videos.
