Hi,a new alto mouthpiece that I bought from eBay. It's a Buffet Crampon and I'm liking it a lot so far.
Thanks Guenne. The distortions are a click, crackling or scratching sound that I hear at several points on playback. But now I'm not sure whether they are on the sax part or on the backing track which I have ripped from the playalong CD from the Hal Leonard book I bought.Hi,
it is a challenge to test it on the melody of this tune, as it is either too high or to low on alto in the usual key
Anyway, well done.
What are the distortions?
Oh...I knew what I was doing..I was going to play bits of the melody, but I couldn't remember them so I played something else instead while I tried to remember it. It didn't sound too bad, so I played it again as I still couldn't remember the melody bit I was going to play, then I thought I needed to play something a bit higher, so I played a bit higher while I still couldn't remember what I was going to play...then I noticed that there was only a couple of inches of the track left in Audacity...so I didn't have time to play what I still couldn't remember anyway. Then it finished without me playing anything that I actually intended to playMost people call this "improvisation" and pretend they know what they are doing.
Thanks Nigel, sometimes I'm almost happy with it...until I hear it played back, then generally I realise how far I have to goCool - your tone is definitely improving
well done, I can hear a big improvementHmm....there isn't enough beginner this month.
Ok, I've been a bit busy this month, and teacher has been touring Scotlanshire on a morobike, so I'm getting round to this late. I've taken the Mark Maxwell (Dr Saxlove) version as the basis as I love his sound. The backing is from his site. (...) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/97346875/This Masquerade.mp3 (...)
