D Major Scale Exercise

In order to improve our musicianship it is critical to improve our technique on the saxophone. Today I am providing you  with a D major scale exercise that you can download.  As you work through the scale exercise be sure to use a metronome. Record your progress as you increase the speed of the metronome. Do not increase the speed of the metronome until until you can play the exercise completely without error. It is also good to practice your jazz articulation ( please see my jazz articulation post ) on this exercise. This exercise includes an altissimo G. If you cant play the altissimo note just insert a rest for that note.
