Hi I am a forum virgin! I play the Alto Sax in a Ska band, which I feel very lucky to be a part, of as I am not very good. I would love some advice (apart from just practicing, I do need to do more of that, but neighbours can get tetchy) on how to improve my playing ie blowing, scales, improvisation etc. x Loops

We play a mix of Trojan and Two tone, with the usual crowd pleasers. Will put up a dodgy video when I have enough posts.

... I remember him, he used to be a lot calmer, when he was plain-old "Eric BloodVessel"...
p.s. the band were called "Ska-B-Dugs" - it's a Shakespearian pun. :) Google "dugs" for enlightenment.......

I am so embarrassed what a whally I am. I can only say what rubbish headphones I have. Sorry. Will google dugs:) Have done "dugs" either large pendulous breasts or the head of a marijuana flower apparently.
