How To Play American Woman On The Saxophone

Who doesn’t want to learn how to play American Woman on the saxophone ?!?

American Woman by The Guess Who is great rock song recorded in 1969 and released in 1970.  It was also covered by Lenny Kravitz in the late 1990’s when once again it was a well known song.

It’s got great guitars, great bass, great drums, great vocals and a fantastic rock feel.  As a result it fits right in here at !!
