Couple of questions for you ... ;}

What sort of sax music do you prefer?

Anyway it's nice to meet you ...

Cool! What are you going to do next week? >:)

Welcome aboard.
:welldone


I was considering Kazoo as it's a simple instrument, simply hum and a tune pops out and we have every note imaginable. At least its much more straight forward than a saxophone.

However next week I might just go shopping and buy a few Vivien Westwood handbags to carry my all new saxophone in.:)))

On a serious note, I will keep practicing my Sax :)

Hi! Big wave back!

To answer your questions...

Ive been you tubing alot to find sax players and have come across a few that i really like:
John coltrane,Ben Webster, Dave Brubeck quartet,Mike Stephens,Dick Perry and the sax in Bonobos music.

I decided to play the sax as at school i was in the orchestra playing the flute. I decided i wanted to try a new instrument and have always been interested in the saxophone.

Nice to meet you too!
:)

Actually, that's something I could use (well maybe not Viven Westwood...). I find it a real pain lugging sax(es), sax stand and music stand, folder full of music around, even if it's just from the car to the rehearsal room. Haven't found a good system for it yet. A kazoo would be more portable, but I think even my sax tone is better than that.

Hi Lindso,
A hello from sunny Essex. I have just got a new teacher and she has already forced me out of bad habits I got into when between teachers. Have you thought about a teacher even just to get you going cos it makes such a difference.
Anyway, enjoy what is a tricky, frustrating yet ultimately great experience.
Ben

Hi Ben,
Yeah i might try and find a teacher in this area, im sure there must be someone local.
The small local shop i bought the sax from said someone works there who can play so i may pop in and ask him for some tips :)
