BTW: In doubt, play loud. If wrong, play strong!
Yes, I hear this. It's something that I started to appreciate a few weeks ago I think. In fact I'm beginning to understand that overall, the way you play, is at least as important as what you play. There are definitely a few places in that track where I was a bit timid in the 'noodling' and you can hear it. It's definitely one of the things I will try to work on. Thanks for the advice.

Thought it might be nice to slow the backing down to 72 bpm and use a laid-back accompaniment for a more ballad feel. Oh, and I also changed the key down a fourth, so that I played the head on soprano from the Eb chart to give a richer sound in the head.

Same setup as before, Ed Pillinger PJ piece, Silverstein lig, Forestone Black Bamboo reed, but with my Sequoia unlacquered straight soprano with stock straight neck.

Ok, I'm gonna sneak one last go in before this one ends. Been exploring some of this with my teacher last Saturday, he worked out lots of the fiddly bits Mark Maxwell adds, I've been playing around with a few of them myself, just fills like the G,C#,C etc. Also worked out the end of the first verse bit that I couldn't work out last time. The 'noodling' is no better, but it's there again. Just some 'experimentation' really, not proper improvisation or nething.

Ok, looking forwards to next months now.
