- Autore Nick Beston
An introduction to blues saxophone styles, techniques and improvisation
The latest addition to this popular series is designed for the intermediate saxophonist looking for an introduction to the blues. Experienced saxophone teacher and performer, Nick Beston, presents straightforward explanations of different playing styles and techniques, and covers topics such as basic blues harmony, chords, riffs, and effects like glissando and 'growling'. Original compositions support each chapter, and 'sax advice' sections offer guidance on the finer points of saxophone playing. High-quality demos and backing tracks on the accompanying CD encourage the reader to apply these techniques to their own improvisations.
