Hi folks,
I'm Nick hailing from the flat lands of Lincolnshire. I'm self taught and have been playing for about 18 years. I play alto mainly, but bought my first tenor about 6 months ago and spent much of that time since wishing I'd bought one years ago !!!
I've played in a few local bands and done a bit of session stuff for some local studios, now go out solo as a singer/sax.
I'm on here to chat and hopefully pick up some pointers and tips along the way .... Being self taught I've picked up some bad habits too, and my theory, playing and sight reading are all at very different levels. It's not good :)
My main alto is an unlaquered yani 992, I play through a eugene rousseau jdx 6 jazz mouthpiece using vandoren jazz reeds (3's) or V16's, held together with a leather lig. My tenor is a Yam yts62 matt. using the mouthpiece it came with although I think another would benefit me.
Anyway, anyway thats a bit about me... just saying HELLO !!!!!

Hi Nick welcome to the cafe. I recently spent a few very snowy days driving my 4x4 around your homeland. Very beautiful!

Welcome groovy - it sometimes seems to me that life is one long stream of bad habits that need rectifying but who cares - you are solo standard - great.
