Thanks Nick & Chris,
those replies were very useful - and opened up a lot more questions ..... but staying on topic, I must give it a try. Maybe some other (quiet) beginners will also.

Thanks again.

Dave.

Hi Jeanette, 'Honey' Hmmm!! It's a G4M alto in a vintage finish. Had a trip over to York just before the DVT struck. So I've only had a short time to get along with it. So far I'm pretty pleased:thumb:, thought the Blues thread would be the easiest place to try it out..The pic was the only thing I had that didn't go blurred on 'Soundcloud', so it's Fri ballad on a Tuesday:)

Well there are lots of people downloading the backing track, but, not lots posting versions on here.
Come on guys, it's not about how good/bad it is it's about taking part. I know anyone can download it, so if you are not a member then JOIN The Café and enjoy the fun of the forum and support a good cause in the process:)

Thanks. It's amazing how different your recorded sound is from what you perceive.

hi. Saw this was open to beginners so I thought I'd give it a go. Played through a couple of time then just hit the record button! I now feel like I'm stood in the town square completely naked!! (moderators please note I never play sax when naked for health and safety reasons:) )

thanks Chris for uploading the backing track
