Hi from the Haute Vienne in France.Have tinkerred with saxes/clarinets for yonks.Now have a lot more time on my hands to indulge myself seriously.Can read music (treble clef) due to childhood violin lessons, but totally self taught on woodwind. Am not a natural instinctive musician, but would like to develop some degree of fluency in improvising. Is it taught or is it caught? Play mostly my yamaha alto 875 at the moment. Also have a Bauhaus tenor and antigua winds sop.

Well, Monsieur Monk. You have asked THE question.
In the meantime, I shall grudgingly forget 1066 and all that :) for a period and welcome you to the BR.
Enjoy.

Merci Beaucoup messieurs. 1066 not really my fault. Lived on South Coast though for about 30 years, but am a Scotsman.

Welcome to the group.

Your english seems to be very good (better than mine probably) - are you a native of France?

Ta Dave. No I am Scots. I have retired out here. Maybe if you heard me speak you wouldn't think my English was so good . Despite over 30 years in England, I still have a thick Glaswegian accent.

Even worse! :) Hairy kneed doodlesax players to a man or woman. :)
Really should be welcoming a fellow Celt.

Frogs in kilts, or is it Jocks in berets, whatever next:shocked:
Had my wingeing neighbour really worried, she overheard me say, jockingly, "I think I'll take up the bagpipes".>:)
Ca va, amuse toi bien et Bonne chance

Welcome to the Celtic fringe, it makes the Engles feel uncomfortable in their own country!:)))

Welcome to the breakfastroom from a warm and sunny Edinburgh. That's a fine collection of saxes you have there. Keep giving them laldy.

Enjoy.
Getting invaded by the French...doesn't that make us French?

Having grown up along the Dover Straits, I consider myself almost French anyway....well France was only 30 miles away.

Welcome from Grenada in the West Indies.

Cheers, Martin

Hi to everyone who has taken the time and effort to welcome me.Thank you.There seems to be an ambience here that the sheer scale of sotw cannot have due to its sheer size.It remains an excellent site though. Looking forward to getting to know you better.
