Any idea? They should not be so difficult to do (well... I said so even when I started making mouthpieces and it took four years to make a decent one). Soft waterproof leather is easy to find, hard felt is easy to find too. You can have it cut in any shape. We also need steam to be sure it is in plane. Some cardboard (?) on the back.. What do we need more? Glue, holes made with different diameters in hard blocks, and some weight to put on the drying pads. Any advice is welcome...
Since I have recently taken the plunge and made a few amateur recordings of myself, I quickly discovered that I know very little about the process. I am hoping there are others on Cafe Sax with experience in this area who can share some general guidelines for getting the best results possible in a less than professional setting.
Some things I am wondering about are mike placement, live or dead room, bell orientation to the mike, how to record the sax separate from the backing track so it can be mixed later, etc. Suggestions for microphones, recording software, mixing software, etc. would also be great.
To the moderators: l wasn't sure where to post this thread. Feel free to move it if it would be better placed elsewhere.
It's about time the Cafe had it's own Blues thread. So here it is.
This is all about you and the Blues No complex jazz changes to challenge
the grey matter, no blistering tempo to change the arthritis . This is open
to ALL members to have a play with. There's NO melody to learn just make up
The backing can be downloaded from here "HoneyRose"
Don't worry the title is just a working title, you can title it what you like. The track has
x5 choruses with a two bar intro, the Key is Bb minor, the tempo is about 80ish.
The chords are.

Feel free to post as many versions as you like, each time you find another way round
the track press record and share it on here. I know Pete and Aldevis will be joining in on...
