Hi all,

I wasn't quite sure where to put this thread, but I figure it might be most valuable for beginners (like me). I'd like to hear what Youtube channels (or possibly specific YT videos) people really like and find themselves going back to. I'm particularly interested in saxophone pedagogical resources, but other music-related stuff would be nice to hear about, too.

Mine are:

* Jeff Schneider (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFKJ7NEE5S76QYK696nXDfg): it's not all saxophone-related, but the guy sounds really good on alto and I've picked up some nice licks in the bebop paradigm, and he has some nicely accessible videos on theory, practice routines, and general musicality.

* D'Addario (https://www.youtube.com/user/ReedsRico/featured) has a bunch of short clips of Jerry Bergonzi, and despite the rather halting presentation, Bergonzi has tons of concise nuggets of wisdom to share. (And if you don't know his playing, you should check him out!) They have a lot of other artists featured, too, but I haven't watched them yet.

* Adam Neely (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnkp4xDOwqqJD7sSM3xdUiQ) has a fantastically interesting, often intellectual channel on a wide range of musical topics. He's a bassist, like me, but his approach would interest people on all sorts of instruments, I think.

* Jazz at Lincoln Center's Jazz Academy (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8ycFlguVIToxRB34x3g1eQ) has tons of short, well-produced videos on a huge range of topics, covering pretty much any instrument you can imagine in jazz. It's more broad than deep, but I've found a lot of value here.

What are you watching? Or should I just shut up and get back to my long tones?

A preliminary **thanks** to all! I've been hip to Bernie's Bootlegs, and have watched a few videos by Bob Reynolds and Stantawn Kendrick, but the others are new to me.

I follow a few tube channels, most have been mentioned before;

Matt Stohrer - useful for repair tips

Bob Reynolds - probably my favourite, love his tone/playing/style and attitude, good tips on practice technique and all things related to music practice.

Stantawn Kendrick - great tone! Great player, very pragmatic approach.

Jeff Schneider - technically beyond my knowledge and abilities but how else do you learn?

Scott Paddock - good tips on technique and the usual things players might want to know.

Jay Metcalf @ Better Sax - likewise, good tips and down to earth advice

Jazz @ Lincoln Center's Jazz Academy

I like the demos at sax.co.uk

Daniel Vissotto is an Alto player I quite like

He has a clean playing style. His version of Summertime started me off liking his channel.
