The most important melodic Coltrane structures – explained and how to use
John Coltrane is one of the most amazing saxophone players in history. 
If you sound half as good as Coltrane you still sound amazing.
Coltranes ease of playing is still amazing to us.
I see Coltrane’s playing as inspiration for other musicians to learn and play with great flexibility, sound and passion.

I think a lot of you will agree with me that listening to Coltrane is amazing. We probably all have one or more periods of time in Coltrane’s playing where we think he sounds amazing.
I really like most of his playing and that is also why I want to share my experiences with you on this.

In this video I look at the amazing 4 note patterns of John Coltrane and give you an easy “how to” add these to your playing.
