Hi, folks. I bought my alto about 20 years ago, dabbled for a few years, then gave up. Lately, I've been listening to jazz and that's got me interested in playing again. So I've got the alto out of mothballs and bought a tenor.

Bet the tenor tastes and smells a lot more appetising than the alto....

Have fun, welcome!

Welcome Dave from an ex Scot living in NZ.

Blow the dust of and keep playing, come to think of it, I play mine with dust!

Cheers & Ciao

Welcome to the forum. It seems that many of us go from alto to tenor, but I wouldn't read too much into that. What matters is how well they are played.

Welcome to the caff©, Dave.

The altos is not for good sporran wearers. Feed it porridge and haggis and it will grow into your spare tenor or a baritone.

ENJOY!

Hi Dave!

A Big Welcome to the Cafe from all those in Skabertawe, down by yer in a fellow Celtic Country! "Alto for brains, Tenor for Brawn" as the saying goes. I am mainly focussing on Soprano at the moment, cultivating a North European Jazz vibe. So what sort of Jazz have you been listening to over recent weeks?

Hope you have a lovely time here, and I look forward to hearing about your progress in the coming weeks and months.
Kind regards
Tom

"Och aye the noo" and other such Scottish type sayings, just to make you feel at home of course!

Greetings Dave and welcome! I am also a returning player after a 20+ year hiatus. I thought bats were going to fly out of the case when I opened it up again about 3 years ago. It's wonderful you've picked it up again.

Cheers!

Hi Dave

Welcome to the cafe,lots of useful advice available here to help you on your way, hope you enjoy the new tenor sax but the alto has many virtues to be explored too when you get to know it better.

All the best...john

I'm sure that's true - I'm well out of practice, and it shows! But I'm working on it.
