This ‘Transcribe Coltrane’ course will enable all students to access one of the most influential saxophonists of all time.
In this course we are going to learn 10 licks in 10 weeks. Each lick has been carefully chosen by me because of its sound, frequency of use and harmonic application.
In this course we are going to transcribe Miles Davis’ solo on ‘So What’ from his seminal album Kind of Blue.
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.
I have set myself the target of learning 400 songs in ten years, and whilst working through my list of 120 songs that I want to learn this year, I realised that a shortened version of this would make an excellent course for you guys.
Learn the Careless Whisper saxophone solo and the story behind it. Why does it sound like it’s played on an Alto when it was actually recorded by British Tenor player, Steve Gregory?
