Cold Sweat Saxophone

If you are a James Brown fan, then you NEED some Cold Sweat Saxophone lessons !

Cold Sweat by James Brown is an iconic funk song from the late 1960’s.  It features the great Maceo Parker on Alto saxophone….this in itself requires Cold Sweat saxophone lessons to be compulsory for anyone learning how to play the saxophone 🙂

As a saxophone player who perhaps likes some more “up beat” songs, you MUST listen to Maceo !

Hit me now !



The funky music from James Brown’s band is infectious, groovalicious, danceable and extremely enjoyable.  It well and truly fits in with our motto here at !

Have Fun.  Play Saxophone.  Be Awesome.  Repeat !

The brass parts are relatively simple – but they certainly sound impressive.  You don’t need to have 20 years of lessons under your belt to make Cold Sweat sound great on your sax.  You do need to use your ears and listen to the beat – but this is explained in our Cold Sweat saxophone lessons, especially in the full version of this lesson inside our Members Area.

In the full Cold Sweat saxophone lesson – as with all full saxophone lessons for all songs that we are learning inside the Members Area – we break the song components down into bite sized pieces.  We slow it down, we dissect it, we build on the individual components until we are confident and comfortable enough to give it all a red hot go.

We are all about quick wins, tips, hints and suggestions here at How To Play The Sax, as well as helping you take your saxophone playing to the next level !!   And learning how to play Cold Sweat on the saxophone is certainly a great way to add more awesome songs to your repertoire.
