In this course we are going to transcribe the sax solo from the Dusty Springfield recording of ‘Spooky’. The solo itself is only 20 seconds long and is based around a blues scale. This course is an ideal starting point if you’ve never transcribed or learnt a solo before.
This was the first solo of Lester Young I ever learnt. It was recommended to me by my mentor, Branford Marsalis. It is a perfect example of how to play the blues.
A series of lessons on learning the head and solo by Cannonball Adderly on ‘Work Song’ from his album ‘Them Dirty Blues’. This is a superb example of the Blues scale in action!
