How To Play The Sax

Alto Lesson 211

Alto Sax Lesson 211 – Proud Mary – by Tina Turner.

Part 3

Tina Turner – incredible singer, legend and superstar.  Taking an already great song from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Tina made it her own.

She added brass parts that lift her version of Proud Mary into another dimension.  It starts off nice and slowly, but we don’t come in until the song changes gear and the drums and brass come in.  It’s a bit quick…but hey, that’s what Rock and Roll and Soul are all about 🙂

And now we can play it too !!

In this series of Proud Mary Alto Saxophone Lessons, we do what we always do – break it down into bite sized pieces.

In Part 1 we look at the Brass Intro and the Lead In.

In Part 2 we look at the Chorus, some Do Do Do’s and a Riff.

In Part 3 we play along with the whole song
