I've only been playing alto sax for about 5 months. Always bangin' away at long notes, major scales then tunes in every one of my daily practice sessions.
Today I thought I'd leave the beaten path and try something else for a change.
So, I thought I'd try to learn a blues scale....
Wow.. it was really fun with a capital F-U-N to just play around this scale :D
I nearly put my sunglasses on :cool: LOL.
Can only recommend this to any beginners like me, who haven't tried this yet.

I always thought of them as kewl. But, suit yourself. Enjoy your new shiny blues scale (and dirty it up in the process). ;)

Get some Aebersold Blues books with playalong CD's. Easy to play stuff but sounds really good. A great way to shed them blues. I think its called "All Blues" and also "Minor Blues in all keys". Great stuff.
