How To Play The Saxophone Solo From Da Doo Ron Ron By The Crystals

In the early 1960’s, when life was in black and white, The Crystals had a mega hit with their strangely titled song Da Doo Ron Ron.

Sometimes known as Da Do Run Ron, or Da Doo Ron Ron – or several other strange permutations and spellings of these 4 syllables, this song is classic 1960’s rock at it’s best.  It was unusual because it was NOT a 12 bar blues like many other songs were at the time.

And….it featured a Baritone Saxophone solo.

The good thing about Bari saxophones is that they are in the same key as Alto saxophones, so they translate nicely together.

In this free saxophone lesson, we will learn how to play the saxophone solo (most of it) for Da Doo Ron Ron on our Alto saxophones.

This video saxophone lesson for Da Doo Ron Ron by The Crystals 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 Da Doo Ron Ron 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.
