Hey all,

Just a newbie who has started out on the alto. Been reading up on all the discussions and finally decided to join.

Just wanted to give a big 'HELLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO' to one and all.

Have a good one.

Cheers

WECOME, MUSICROCKS!

I'm a noobie too, just joined on 9-24.

Been taking beginning lessons on Tenor for about 2 months.

We seem to be one huge Saxophone Choir here!

Hello and welcome.

I visited Sydney two years ago and it completely blew me away. I hope one day I'll be able to get back there.

Strewth - another bl**dy Aussie!:)))

Of course New Zealand's most western island...:thumb:

Welcome from across the ditch (Tasman Sea to all you Northern Hemisphere folk) from the Land of the Long White Cloud (or should that be Land of the Long White Rip-Off?)

Regards,

Hi there!

A Big Welcome from the Skabertawe Lites, down here in Old South Wales - land of Shane Williams and some of the other boys.
What is your alto set up? I look forward to following your contributions, progress and questions on the forum.

Kind regards
Tom

HEY MUSICROCKS:

Since you're an Aussie, when it comes time to repad your Alto, you're fortunate in having plenty of select Roo hide in your neighborhood to choose from!

Hey All, Thanks for the 'BIG WELCOMES'

Just to clarify, its MUSIC ROCKS. Just crazy about good music.

Am in my early 30's and just started learning on an alto which I picked up for approx $330 incl shipping from Guitar centre. It's an Etude EAS 100 and sounds reasonably decent (atleast to my ears) though am still struggling shifting from C to D on the G major scale (hope I got that right). I like contemporary music and some Kenny G (though I wish I had a few more lungs to play any of his stuff). I don't really like listening to modern music but the sax cover versions tend to really blow me away.

Been practicing for about 2 weeks now and still going on long tones and the G Scale.

For my friends across the "DITCH", am learning off this cool Kiwi guy who is in Sydney for bit.

However haven't seen that many people interested from this side of world. Seems to be more popular with the US. Either that or have been reading the wrong posts and websites.

Don't think I will be able to contribute soon enough considering have just been practicing for about 2 weeks and that too in the park with my wife playing the role of my ears (not ideal since she usually gets grumpy since I go early in the morn and play over her whilst shes trying to practice her 'descant recorder').
Learnt a few good things in the park - never leave your case open( the dogs love to steal anything from the pad savers to the reeds) and ofcourse if you blow it at them, they tend to take offense no matter how innocent you try to look.

Another half an hour and then a nice long weekend to relax. Feels so good right now.........

Mu,
Win the missus over. Let her have a blow and explain that the first three fingers of each hand, do roughly the same on both instruments.
