How To Play Shake Everything You’ve Got On The Saxophone

If you play the saxophone, or are a human who likes funk music, then you MUST listen to an AMAZING saxophonist by the name of Maceo Parker.

Maceo Parker is one of the greatest saxophone players that has ever lived, in the world, in space.

He has many songs and musical credits to his name – he has done a lot of work with James Brown and Prince, to name but a tiny select few.

One of Maceo’s songs is called “Shake Everything You’ve Got”.  It has an infectious groove, is impossible not to dance to, and well and truly falls into the’s mantra of Have Fun, Play Saxophone, Be Awesome, Repeat !!!!

Let’s learn how to play Shake Everything You’ve Got by Maceo Parker on the saxophone 🙂

From one saxophonist to another, I highly recommend that you have a bit of a poke around on Youtube for Maceo Parker videos.  His career spans from the 1960’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s, 2010’s and beyond.  His bands are always terrific, his vocal chops are very impressive and quite simply his saxophone playing is pure genius.

This video saxophone lesson for Shake Everything You’ve Got by Maceo Parker is an edited and condensed version.

The full and complete version of this and all of our saxophone lessons are available to our Members inside our Members Area.

In the full Shake Everything You’ve Got 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 we have some fun along the way.
