Hi,
Taking back the sax after a long time, I'm currently discovering sax youtubers, who are you favorites?
For now, I'm subscribed to Saxologic and Bob Reynolds (love the guy and his videos!)

As for non-saxophonists music youtubers, I really like Adam Neely, Nahre Sol or David Bruce

I don't find any of the sax youtubers very helpful for what I am trying to learn music-wise, but many of them are entertaining and generally have good advice.

For music nuts and bolts, I find piano people more enlightening. People like Kent Hewitt. I also like to look up videos of Barry Harris at his workshops and videos of various musicians giving their take on Barry's concepts.

Sirvalorsax, Wally Wallace, Donna Schwartz, Scott Paddock, Better Sax, McGill, Sax Tuition. As a beginner I do glean some useful information.

You've already mentioned a few of my favourite YouTubers (Jay Metcalf, Sirvalorsax etc.), so I will write about others:

- Cool Jazz (name of the channel, I don't know the real name of this man). Very fine musician playing vintage saxophones and - mostly vintage - mouthpieces. I would like buy someday pre-war Conn 10M with RTH and this man remind me why I dream about this horn so badly :)

- Horn Club - quite a new channel. Two fine musicians talk about saxophones, play vintage saxophones, there is also a news section.

- Stohrer Music - Saxophone Repair Shop. About repairing saxophones :). Also many interesting informations about vintage horns.

Our very own SOTW members bb and ffjay have some fantastic stuff on their channels. And for some great bass sax, check out Bert Brandsma.

I really enjoy:
Jay Metcalf, Jamie Anderson, Dave Pollack, Dr Wally Wallace, Dan Forshaw and Matt Stohrer.

Honourable mentions to:
Sirvalorsax, Scott Paddock, Nigel McGill, Saxologic and ChadLB, but his voice is so calming that I fall asleep!

The long and short of it is that I watch far too much YouTube!

Sax Academy is #1 for me. I like a lot of others - I like them a lot! But Dr. Wally has the perfect dry humor and his playing is terrific. He is also one of the few people out there that isn't advocating crazy stuff like storing reeds in listerine and putting high mass screws on the horn :ROFLMAO: It's just really refreshing to have a breath of sanity on the internet along with mad sax skills and hilarious sense of humor.

Thanks for all or your answers!

Yes, I really like his videos too, and at least he's not trying to sell you something for half of the video length :coffee:

(Oh wait.
...
A bit invasive with his jazz wire thing though)
