boots has a great book called " boots randoph's rock and roll saxophone" that has a full transcription of the tenor part along with a lot of other stuff. he has chapters devoted to major, minor, dominant,and blues scales. another chapter on technique, articulation, tone, and ear training.
stuff on tircks of the trade like growl, pops, etc. also a very good interview . worth the 16.95 for the book and cd. the cd includes a playalong for yakety sax.
in the book boots explains the origin of the song and what it did for his career. did you know boots played the awesome rock sax solo in " rockin around the christmas tree? "
boots was originally a jazz saxophonist who loved rock but became famous playing to country audiences but yet if you lived in the last 50 years you have heard and admired him, even if you didn't know it. i saw him live in 1970-71. made me want to play sax.saw him again this year. STILL AN AWESOME PLAYER.
