    The problem with sax is that you have to use your face/mouth for tone production.
    If you are not doing the right thing from the begining - it becomes difficult to correct later.

    You can play chromatics on saxophone - however certain keys and scales are much easier (because of key placements).
    Its pretty intuitive instrument though - but not as easy to get started as piano or guitar.
