This week we are going to talk about how to achieve a more individual sound for yourself. Transcription is amazing and something that everyone needs to do daily but it’s also important to come up with your own concepts and build vocabulary for yourself.
It’s always easier to start with something simple and work your way from there to material you can actually use in your playing. This episode is going to walk you through the process of building a line starting with only whole notes and working your way to using 8th notes and various rhythmic devices, resulting in an awesome line that you have written yourself! This building blocks approach is helpful in all aspects of music and hopefully will get you off on the right foot to playing like a pro! Enjoy the episode!

Hi Nick, Was curious whar kind of sax you play, and mouthpiece and reeds? I relly like your sound. Also #50 is great…can see the way to build on something very simple. Thanks…
Hey Peggy! I play on a Yamaha Custom Z tenor right now. My mouthpiece is a Jody Jazz HR* size 8*. Reeds are filed 3 hard Daddario Jazz Select. Hope that helps, glad you enjoyed the episode and thanks for being such a faithful listener!
