Hello all,looking forward to receiving advice from the experienced players on here,3 weeks ago I bought a Yamaha YAS280 as a 70th birthday present to myself and am loving it so far,have a touch of COPD so my breathing is a touch lacking but hopefully will improve as I get further along with it.
Never played a wind instrument before,play a bit of fiddle and guitar,my neighbour is probably thinking "oh my God what now",anyway here I am and hoping to learn a lot of interesting and useful stuff from more epxerienced people

I also started at 70 but I had a little experience... 60+ years ago. It ended when I smashed the clarinet on the floor because it wouldn't stop squeaking! Since then, I had a brief moment with a bass clarinet before it was stolen. After all these years listening to sax as one of my favorite instruments, I finally woke up to reality.
Welcome to the best run social network for saxophonists with the kindest knowledgable people to help.
