Playing alto 2 1/2 years
Whatever it is you know how to do, using it musically is a part of the personality and elements of saxophone playing I constantly annoy everyone here with. The definition of a player's recognisable sound is made up of the totality of devices they have at their disposal. If you can double tongue, you don't do it in every song all the time, but it can be used in spots. Eric definitely uses it in funk, and he uses it well.
