There are times when writing for saxes that your voicings result in repeated notes in individual parts. You will want to avoid this if you can, especially as the tempo of the tune moves higher and higher.
I was working on a chart just now, and realized as I was doing parts that I had repeated notes in a two measure portion written for saxes. In this lesson, I show you how to use “cross voicing” to eliminate many instances of repeated notes in a sax soli. If you find too many repeated notes in a section, reevaluate the voicings you are using. Good use of chord progression should inherently eliminate many potential repeated notes, but there are always seems to be some that pop up even when you do.
By the way, this lesson was created using Screen O Matic, one ever of the coolest tools I’ve seen for recording your computer screen and sharing with others.
