One of the best forums on the web about home recording Audiominds.com.
My brother Clark "Mac" McDonald (Air Force Band veteran, trumpet, piano, guitar and studio engineer) is one of the head advisors at this site.

In the future I'm going to set up a blog about sax equipment and practice tips, stay tuned!

Meanwhile, some of my peers have been putting out some excellent material.
I just obtained Greg Fishmans book Hip Licks for Saxophone, highly recommended!
Visit Greg Fishman's Website www.gregfishmanstudios.com

Also pay a visit to educator and saxophonist Tim Price, I have a few of his books, excellent educational material. Tim Price Saxophone
