I love November here in the UK. We celebrate the day that a government rebel tried to blow up the House of Parliament by hiding gunpowder in the cellar. We light bonfires and set off fireworks as a representation of the rumbled plot. Crazy eh? The other reason I love November is because it's my birthday and this year I leave the 20's behind. This is the 22nd Anniversary of the first time I picked up a Saxophone, mind blowing!
Last month saw the end of Stage 5 of the Saxophone Fundamentals Course for beginners and the introduction of two more songs complete with backing tracks and sheet music. Some of the other new material I've added to the site includes:
- Technique: Live Vibrato Training
- Rhythm: Applying Swung and Dotted Quavers
- Song: Besame Mucho - Latin Rock Version
- Knowing your flat Major Scales
- Completed Stage 5 of the fundamentals
- Scales: A and E Minors to a 12th and Bb Major over two octaves
- New Notes: Low Bb, D#/Eb, High E
- Song: Creep - Radiohead
