Why Can’t I Be You Saxophone Lesson

The Cure had a great song in the late 1980’s called Why Can’t I Be You…..and it’s got some great brass and keyboard lines that translate very nicely onto the saxophone.

Why Can’t I Be You by The Cure is a fun song with a repetitive beat and rhythm.  Even if you are a Saxophone Bedroom Warrior, this song is good for keeping in time, coming back in with the main riff and for listening to what the other instruments and vocals are doing throughout the song.

If you would like to play along with a rather fun and infectious, repetitive riff, then please join me in another of our many saxophone lessons here at HowToPlayTheSax.com !

This video saxophone lesson for Why Can’t I Be You by The Cure is an edited and condensed version.

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

In the full Why Can’t I Be You saxophone lessons – 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.
