I just signed up here mostly because I was so taken by Pete's support of music for kids with disabilities

I have been playing music either as a vocation or an avocation much of my life. I played sax from age 8-20 and acoustic guitar from 15 to the present. Started back playing sax after a dental operation 4 years ago that corrected a problem at age 20 when I bit a steering wheel rather harder than I should have. (car was a write off so am thankful that was all that happened)

I play alto mostly now,layer sop until Christmas but that's another boring story of getting on in life.

Anyway hi all

Hi.

Some of us offer useful advice.

Some of us disagree with it.

It's up to you to decide who is right.

It's how the internet works everywhere.

Hope you have fun playing sax.

There's no point otherwise.

Big welcome from me. Glad the car came off worst. If you're moving up from sop to alto, it'll soon be time for a tenor. Have fun!

Hi and welcome!
so glad that you were able to return to sax playing, that must have been a horrible time for you at 20, so glad that you were ok (dental problems aside).
enjoy the rest of your musical journey!
Jo :)

Welcome to this side of the pond, and thanks for your help re: Rawchestra

Legere reeds to name a few.

Just watched the bones episode where Temperance has a "run in" with the canadian podiatrist, bit of an unfair stereotype but nice that he got the upper hand. Well, as much as you can with bones.

Welcome - there's so much going on here.

I've just discovered another great Canadian; Montreal based saxman
and restorer, Al Mclean. What a lovely player. Track down 'Ring around the Rosie'
on Youtube, or maybe you hear him live?

Hi and "Good Day Eh", Visited your beautiful City last August, much nicer that Regina Saskatchewan where I worked and froze for two years, unfortunately I imported a 'stubble jumper' back to the UK, and I've still got her! Really glad your back playing and long may it continue

Cheers

My goodness, what a wonderfully welcoming group. Thank you all.

For allansto I bit steering wheel in 69 and left a few teeth embedded in the wheel started playing a bit of sop 2008 and in fall of 2010 enrolled at Victoria Conservatory/camosun College for degree in jazz performance with sax as major.

I look forward to getting to know the denizens of this forum.

We Canadians stereotype quite well and yes we do tend to apologize to walls when we bump into them eh!
