Hello, I've been playing tenor sax off and on for a while. I've primarily learned to play by ear, but want to be able to learn scales, arpeggios, and other beginner/intermediate techniques. I'm looking for a DVD that will go over these basic things, and perhaps some play-along exercises or some improv lessons too.
Am I asking too much? I've been searching for too long on the so-called world wide web tonight, and have curiously come up with very little. I have a hard time believing that there's not an entrepreneurial sax player out there that has never developed a multi-dvd series. I'm hoping to get some good recommendations here. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
I've looked at Essential Elements, which looks promising--but a bit limiting. A few pro players have some: Steve Wilkerson (one reviewer said its mostly him playing and not explaining basic things), Eric Marienthal, Pete Thomas (alto, but looks good, however a UK DVD which won't play on my TV), Joey Berkley. Any of these or others that fit my criteria?
