    JF – if you’re reading this, if you did a similar thing to this, like
    create 12 separate backing tracks for practicing the scales along to.
    that sound better than the above, i would up for buying them.

    Thanks sxpoet for the links to the mp3 files. I think they could come in useful. I am new to the site but think this group likes to help each other and share info on JFs courses etc. which is good to know of others trying to improve and how they did it. I have a couple of books of tunes with play along tracks but did not buy any type of course because I wanted to do some research first. It sounds and looks like JF has a pretty good system with his beginners course and then the daily practice course. I have to agree with him that when trying to learn not to take the shot gun approach or you will not improve very fast. That direct focused approach sounds like what I need because there is so much out there that will distract a new student.


    Frank – the best advice anyone can give you is to find a sax teacher preferebly in the first year.

    A good sax teacher will sort out your embouchure, breathing, choice of reed/mouthpiece set up which works for you.


    It’s amazing that from playing scales when you go to play random notes that your fingers want to keep playing notes in order from scales. It’s like you have to re – train yourself from scales.

    I like playing scales, but then again I’m sick like that, I love the misery.
    Mournful scale of the day-B-flat -minor—Bb-C-Db-Eb-F-Gb-Ab——kill me now.


    practicing playing scales, gets the fingers fluid when you come to playing a sheet music in said scale.


    All I can say, is, INTERVALS,,, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc. Any scale. Fun stuff as you do your scales! Tim
