I was feeling a little down today, my Dr sent me for blood tests today and its got me really quite worried, but thats a different story.

When I got home I had the place to myself. The trouble is my favorite horn, my tenor, is away being sorted after its tumble. So i got my bari and my alto out. Now I haven't played my alto seriously for quite a while. She comes out every now and then for a quick play, but nothing serious. Well today that all changed! Two hours of pure play, no scales, no long tones, just pure unadulterated tunes! What did I do at the end of my practice? I got my bari out and did it all over again! Fantastic!

Sax is a great way to forget your worries and problems.

Hope the tests results are ok:)

+1 for sax as a stress relief and mood enhancing activity.

I wouldn't worry about the blood tests, here they do them so often you know going to the docs is going to result in that pincushion feeling.

Sounds like a really good second half to the day, Pete.
Hope the tests are OK. These things usually are.

Hi Pete,
Don't get too down mate, meeting troubles half way didn't do anyone any good.
Two spoonfuls of saxophone have done the trick. Hope you don't have to wait too long for the all clear, which I'm sure will come.

If the doctor takes your blood you know he's looking after you.
Time to start worrying is when he just takes the p**s.

Great therapy to be found in unadulterated alto playing. Hope you're soon feeling better :)

Best of luck with the tests.....no doubts the endorphins release well after a good session........albeit not always melodic:)

Well done! It is always good to practise before bloody exams. :cheers:

The tenor is back from her sleep over! I felt like a parent whose child was staying away for the first time, in fact I rang the guy (luckily he's a friend) just to make sure that she was ok! She's great, but I've noticed that in the three weeks or so since the gig and the lack of playing, I've lost the ability to hit my low notes nicely! I'm sure it'll come back soon enough though. :shocked:

How about I hold the £50 and give you and extra 10 minutes on the bari? (bring your own antiseptic wipes)
