Epic Sax Guy Notes- How to Play Epic Sax Guy Line on Alto Sax

by Neal

My student Paul in NY asked how to play this one, so here it is.

Starts on F#, that note repeats a few times. (Notes for tenor sax below video)

You bend the A.

Though there is a ten hour video on youtube, I wouldn’t recommend playing it for that long!

Correction: at 1:47, it says D E, but I’m playing E D. It should be E D. There is an annotation with this correction already on the youtube version, but that might not be visible here.

Notes for tenor saxophone:
B
B B B B A B B
B B B A B B
D B A G
E E F# G E

i love this but you should make sheet music bro so we can be able to print it out it will help us better, not saying your video is bad its great its really helpful but for most of us printing it out would be much easier bt if you could make something to print it out i will appreciate it thank you bro..

It’s good to not rely on sheet music that much. I learned this by ear, didn’t write down the music.

Nice video, but just to let you know that after the A-F# bit you have put D-E when what you play and the music is is E-D

Thanks, I play E D like it should be, but mixed them up on the diagram. Had added an annotation in the video, but I don’t think it’s displaying here. So I just added a note about that.
