  1. Thanks for the riff.
    I would enjoy seeing some “ hard core” sax riffs or licks, from guys like Stevie. Ray Vaughn, Albert King , BB King etc.
    Thanks again

    1. Hi Sam,
      Most of the transcriptions i’ve studied are by the great jazz masters. There probably are transcriptions by R&B players, but i haven’t studied them. Coming up working in R&B, rock, and pop bands, i learned all those licks by ear. Guys like King Curtis, Lee Allen, Gene “Daddy G” Barge, and Junior Walker really tore it up back then. When Jimi Hendrix came out, i tried to emulate him on tenor. Clarence Clemons knocked me out later on. These days, there are a thousand N. Texas State grads with chops to burn, but them original cats could move ya with one great note.
