Luca Mantovanelli: 20 Sax Inspired Funky Licks

20 Sax Inspired Funky Licks

We have something very cool and different for you that you're not going to want to miss! We all know that saxophone players are renowned for their inspirational phrasing, articulation and groove. Now, Luca Mantovanelli shows you exactly how to take these 20 fantastic saxophone licks and interpret them into your own playing.

Luca says 'Learning saxophone lines for guitar is one of the best ways to improve your improvisational skills. We gave this funky backing track to British sax player Rob Hughes who created 20 awesome licks that I could then interpret on guitar. What we end up with is a lot of great new lines, ideas and ways to get you playing and thinking outside of the usual improvisational box.'

On the theory and technique front you can expect lots of Dorian, Pentatonic and Blues scales, slides, bends, chromatic passing tones, triad lines, and a few exotic sounding scales like Harmonic Minor and Altered fragments.

In each lick video, Rob Hughes plays the lick on his saxophone, and then Luca shows you exactly how to play the lick on your guitar! We have also included slow versions of the licks, accurate TAB/Notation and bonus lick notes, all to help you analyse, study and master these inspirational and creative saxophone licks.

Jeff Kollman: announced for Sebastian Bach tour

We are pleased to welcome guitarist Jeff Kollman to the band! I first saw Jeff play with Chad Smiths' Bombastic Meat Bats at the Baked Potato in Studio City California a couple weeks ago. He plays in the Meat Bats along with my bass player Kevin Chown, who is also joining us tonight in Kansas City with Bobby Jarzombek on the drums. Jeff Kollman has played with Tony MacAlpine, Asia, to name a few. He's a shredder of the highest order and we are psyched to rock with him!"
