Hi

Thought I better say hello! I'm very new to playing the sax and although having lessons I seem to be failing miserably!

I have a Trevor James Alto - I bought it for the wife as she wished to learn but never took lessons - so in a fit of temper I said I would learn. Somehow after playing for a few weeks I seemed to end up buying a used Yamaha YTS 62..... I seem to have been bitten by the sax bug!

Hopefully soon I will be able to string a tune together......

Sut Mae Squawky!

Hope you get on well with the Yami, and do enjoy your time in the Cafe! Are you still playing the Alto or just the Tenor?

Kind regards
Tom:cool:

Hi Squawky,
I started on a Trevor James too, less than two years ago.

Keep at it, you'll love it!

Hi from cool Cornwall. Lots of us trying to get better. Wander round the site and Pete's section. Keep practising, I'm told it will get easier! Welcome.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. It's nice to know that there are others who struggle as well!

With regards to still playing the Alto, I must admit that when things get sticky with the tenor (when I get the hump basically!) I pick up the alto - have a quick blow and then go back to the tenor!
