How To Play I Love Rock N Roll On The Saxophone

I Love Rock And Roll – I Love Rock N Roll…. I know I love both, but is it Rock AND Roll or simply Rock N Roll ?  It probably doesn’t matter when we’ve got a saxophone in our mouth !

A big dirty rock song from the legendary Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in the early 80’s, this song is known for its guitars.

However, my theory is why should the guitars have all the fun ?  Let’s learn how to play I Love Rock N Roll on the saxophone !

It’s important to grunge and sneer during this song.  Pretend like you are not really having fun….and if possible, please put on a whole heap of eye liner to complete the effect.

I like this song because it’s got a regular repeating riff with several off beat and anticipated notes.  Being able to play these consistently and accurately can be a worthy challenge that is worth mastering on your saxophone.
