Hello,

Can anybody recommend a good book/ DVD for learning the basics of sax playing?

I did take some lessons some 10 years ago, so I'm not totally new to sax; but I haven't played in several years. I also play some guitar, and know my chords and scales... at least in theory :)

Unfortunately I cannot make the commitment to take lessons at the moment. Maybe next year...

Anyway, my goals are to learn / improve:

* sight-reading -- this is something that I have learned and forgotten many times over the years. I would like to see if this time I learn it for good.

* intonation -- I hate playing out of tune

* basic playing technique -- from Frere Jacques on up

I don't intend to play any classical or jazz for the time being. If I can go to the open mic at the local blues club and not get thrown out, I'm golden.

Any recommendations on books or videos to learn from are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hernan
