Our Sax Choir is preparing to play at the closing session of Bands in the Park in our local town bandstand on 8th September.

This afternoon, we had a 4 hour rehearsal, which went really well.

One of the pieces we play is YMCA... (must make sure we get all those repeats, DS and coda in the right place!)

So, I start this piece on low A - 6 bars of rhythm on low A played forte (ooh, I love how that bari can sound like a fog horn down there).

After the first 6 bars our MD stops us and says we are not sounding right.
I examine my fingers - all of them down to play low C, plus that thumb key to play low A - oh hang on a minute, that's the octave thumb key, not the A thumb key.

So...it's only a tiny error, with such disastrous consequences - upper C instead of low A, only a minor 10th adrift! :))) :))) :)))
