Tutor Description

James Morton has been playing sax since the age of eight. Now one of the most exciting jazz artists on the European music scene, James now plays solo gigs as well as with groups, including a James Brown tribute alongside Pee Wee Ellis, and another alongside Andy Sheppard. James has also worked with Pendulum and Kasabian, among other popular contemporary artists, and is a great tutor for anyone looking to bring edge and excitement to their own sax playing.

  • Funk Licks Series 2 - Lesson 1In lesson one of Funk Licks Series 2, James recaps the purpose of the Funk Licks series' and recaps how these series accompany his Funk Improvisation series, in this case the series being a complement to Funk Improvisation Series 2. With recaps done, James is straight into showing you the first two licks of this series, continuing where he left off in Funk Licks Series 1 by breaking down each lick to make it easy for you to practice, put together, or even change into your own version.
  • Funk Licks Series 2 - Lesson 2Lesson two of Funk Licks Series 2 brings you another two great sounding, funky licks for you to add to your sax repertoire. As always, James takes his time to demonstrate the licks to you before talking you through the lick, helping you to simulate and visualise the beat, before breaking them down so they're easy to practice, helping you to get on the path to mastering them quicker than you otherwise would. At this stage the Funk Licks are starting to get a little more challenging, but if you've been playing along with James since Funk Licks Series 1 this will definitely feel like a natural progression.
  • Funk Licks Series 2 - Lesson 3Lesson three brings you another two amazing funk licks, and again the rhythmic complexity continues to increase as James teaches you more exciting riffs for you to try for yourself. These licks are also starting to bring in different techniques and tricks that you might have learned from James' other series but also from our other tutors such as Craig Crofton, Andy Sheppard, and Roberto Manzin. James talks about offbeats and accents within these licks and why they're important, while as always giving you plenty of time and opportunities to play them for yourself.
  • Funk Licks Series 2 - Lesson 4Get set for another two incredible sounding funky licks here in lesson four. James is straight into playing the licks while explaining how he is using the Blues scale to create these specific funk licks. As these licks again continue to become more complex, James breaks each down slowly and systematically, meaning it is easy for you to practice just one part of the lick if there's a specific component you're struggling to nail down. Use the practices and tips provided by James to master these funk licks and progress to learning the final licks featured in Funk Licks Series 2.
  • Funk Licks Series 2 - Lesson 5In lesson five of Funk Licks Series 2 the licks become longer and again more challenging. If you've followed James' Funk genre series from the start however then you'll be skilled at breaking down James' teachings and be already working in his ideas to your own improvisations and solos almost habitually. As with all these Funk Licks lessons, this lesson sees you learning another two funky licks, broken down and explained by James before being enjoyed in context with the backing track playing in the background. Master these licks before moving onto the sixth and final lesson of Funk Licks Series 2.
