50 Ways to Improve Your Improvisational Skills

Series: Sax Instruction Publisher: Hal Leonard Format: Softcover Audio Online Author: Dennis Taylor

Amazing Phrasing is for any sax player interested in learning how to improvise and how to improve their creative phrasing. The ideas are divided into three sections: Harmony (explores scales, arpeggios, chord substitutions, harmonic embellishments, and other harmonic phrasing ideas), Rhythm (covers legato tonguing, swing feel, rhythmic displacement, how to manipulate time, and other aspects of rhythmic phrasing), Melody (discusses contour lines, making patterns musical, developing a motif, building a solo, and many other melodic phrasing ideas). The accompanying audio tracks include demos for listening, as well as many play-along examples so you can practice improvising over various musical styles and progressions.

The price of this book includes a unique code that provides access to audio tracks online, for download or streaming. The tracks include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right – available exclusively from Hal Leonard.
