All over the world, “Baker Street” has to be one of the most iconic pop sax lines.
Perhaps these days the “Sexy Sax Man” has given Baker Street a run for it’s money, but if you are over 30 then chances are the opening sax line from Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street” is one of the first pop sax lines that comes to mind.
And for good reason – it’s so cool. Plus it’s fun to play on sax, even if you are a relatively new player.
The original sax lines were recorded by British player Rafael Ravenscroft and they feature that iconic “run up” to high D on alto sax.
In this lesson I show you in easy steps how to play the opening line so you can share this with your friends and family!
UPDATE: I recorded this a while ago, you can see the new updated lesson here.
