These longtone exercises are what I was missing in my efforts to learn control and tuning in playing my soprano. I practice them daily.
during lockdown i brought a soprano ,usually play tenor . Tuning needs attention. Have been working on embouchure with some success using a tuner on computer which also has sine wave but only one note at a time. These exercises are just what i need. long way to go but looking good thanks.
I find it very useful for improve tuning using EARS and not the EYES at the tuner. I use it not only with the written notes but also experimenting intervals. I think a good "second edition" could have chords under the sine waves. Thank you JazzDuets!
Before this I had been resorting to using cello drone material on You Tube. This is so much better. Works great with tenor. It is a real workout and I am finding that it is great all round ear-training as it is really helping me with pre-hearing intervals before I play them - a fundamental skill but one which, I admit, I have not been very good at previously. At this price this is a n absolute bargain. Great work Nick.
Soprano Saxophone Sine Wave tuning Exercises it’s really great the soprano is Dutch a hard instrument to keep in tune these exercises really help especially with the mp3 files a big help great value as well thank you. Joe
Works also fine with tenor sax
This is an excellent product, well thought out. Previously I’ve been using cello drones playing different scales and chord structures over but this works even better. For soprano I doubt anything could beat this, it even works for alto if you transpose and use the proper register.
Its an excellent workout, like the one for alto you did before. Maybe you should do one for tenor too. (I tried the one for soprano for tenor, that’s ok too.) Best wishes Frank
Hi Nick Been following your channel for a while. love the material and your way of explaining and delivering content. quality stuff! I was wondering if you have ever looked into doing a comprehensive list of quarter tonal fingerings for soprano sax? been listening to Hayden Chisholm quite a bit recently and really love the way he uses it. found some material on the net for fingurings but nothing really well put together. anyway it a whole world of its own! if you have any material on it be great to hear it. Great videos keep them coming. peace. Andrew
I think they are a great warm up ex.
