A basic study moved through six steps. Then I included one of my own
based on a variation of some of the first six.I think it's always good
for all of us to go back to a basic pattern study to clear our ears and
refresh our chops. Look at all six shapes.

Guido thank you. So much in saxophone study IS basics...from there it SHOULD be you.
If I may quote...Vincent Van Gogh, in a letter to his brother Theo, wrote: “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. And great things are not something accidental, but are willed. What is drawing? How does one learn it? It is working through an invisible iron wall that seems to stand between what one feels and what one can do.”

Any serious saxophone player should be a person who attempts to be in touch with his/her inner self in order to communicate this information to others through their expertise. From there...there is so much more but IMPOSSIBLE without skills and musical basics.
