Saxophone Chromatic Scale

Fun with Chromatics – Saxophone Chromatic Scale.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

Alto Saxophone Scales are the vegetables of music.

This also includes learning how to play chromatic scales on your saxophone.

If you eat your vegetables, you will grow up to be big and strong.

If you play your alto saxophone scales – including the saxophone chromatic scale – then you will be able to play the kind of music and songs that YOU want to play on your saxophone.

Just like physical exercises repeated over time make your muscles bigger and stronger, so too will the saxophone chromatic scale make your playing bigger / better / stronger / faster / able to leap tall buildings in a single bound / MORE AWESOME !!!!!

This lesson and video showing a saxophone chromatic scale is an edited and condensed version.

The full version of this saxophone lesson is available to our Members inside our Members Area.

In the full lesson – as with all full lessons for all songs that we are learning inside the Members Area – we break the song or the concept 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.
