How To Play Live And Let Die On The Saxophone

Paul McCartney and Wings had an enormous hit with their song Live and Let Die.  So, let’s get our 007’s on and into some Live And Let Die Saxophone Lessons !

The song from the James Bond movie of the same name has got a wonderful brass section, largely led by French Horns.  However, that should not stop us saxophonists 🙂

Live and Let Die Saxophone Lessons….well, I’d rather that they live and with this great song from a great movie they most certainly do.

The interesting thing about this song is that it is kind of sort of three or four songs mashed together into one.

In this free saxophone lesson we concentrate on the fast part, with its off beats and timing.

If you think about it too much, it can be a bit tricky….so my advice is don’t think about it – just have fun, play saxophone, be awesome and repeat !
