Knocked this soprano improv off today for you Kenny G fans :w00t: Songbird
http://soundcloud.com/daveysax1

Who would have guessed - Davey a closet Kenny G fan:))) well not so closet the whole inter-web knows now...

On a serious note now (pun intended - the serious note for today is F#) the Yamaha 475 series soprano sounds great - a bit of twist on Kenny's version - keep it up Davey - you've got to record the baritone next:thumb:

Cheers,

Greg S.

The 475 yamaha Japan version sop is rated as 1 of the best all round sops going .Many like it more than the custom yamahas as it is more vibrant .

Excellent playing with conviction. Sounds like a style you have played a lot of, but from what you say it isn't. So much the better for making it convincing.

Actually I like the alto 'Lily' track as well, although I don't think Dave Stewart would - you're muscling in on his guitar part...:)))

That 32 Yam sounds fine...:thumb:

Enjoyed it Dave. That melody line and background arrangement could be performed using different instruments and sound good. Let us know when you record his "Going Home" which is also a nice composition.

Just took another listen to this. You've done a great job here, with none of KennyG's cheesiness. Only one negative - the ending - it sounded more like it'd been cut off, rather than finishing.

Good that you've started recording. We've, I think, all laughed as you've tried kit, raved about it, then sold it on and bought something else, only to repeat the cycle. You've ended up with a monster sound, keep it going!!!!

As said i'm no way happy with the soprano track.1st go trying to record a soprano well so the couple of hours total on it was messing about mixing not playing.Soprano must be the hardest thing to record well due to its sonic sounds.
