Hii :)
I don't know if you really care, but I have to write and say that I'm sooo incredibly happy, since I just received a scholarship á 3000 swedish krona (that's about 500 USD or 300 GBP). I'm savning for an own sax, so the money is going to that piggy-bank ^^
I played take 5 (although, I was so nervous and I played wrong at some parts).
Yaay :p

You'd be surprised how much we care....

Well done, congrats! Really pleased for you! What sax are you looking for?

Thx ^^
Uhm, I don't really know, I'm a high school student, so I don't really have a lot of money, so I'll guess that it'll be a cheap one, like a jupiter or yamaha for about 1000 USD/650 GBP. Do you have any ideas of a good one?

Jupiter/Yamaha aren't that cheap.

There's an as-new Jupiter Alto just been listed in the yard sale that'd probably fit your budget, if you can get a little more than the scholarship you've just won

Well done mate. Don't worry about the wrong notes. We just call that improvisation round here.

That's a good outcome. You're obviously on the right track. Jupiters are not always fashionable, but Kevgermany's reminder that one is available in the yard sale is worth bearing in mind.

And well done on the Scolarship, :welldone before buying a sax try as many as you can to get the feel of the sax, and don't forget to take your favourite mouthpiece with you, are you after Alto/Tenor ? or other

Don't know if you are aware of Eric Morecambe's explanation to Andre Previn that he was "not playing all the wrong notes, they were the right notes in the wrong order."

Enjoy the new horn but don't do an Andre on us. A brilliant jazz pianist with Shelly Manne and his own group Andre Previn and his Pals, abandoned it and went down the classical conductor route. Mind you he did marry a very tasty Hollywood star.

Congratulations on the Scholarship, that a brilliant achievement. As for the sax, have a look at the Bauhaus Walstein family. They are within your budget and are very well respected horns.

Scuse I, but I have read Wallender and I am not sure that Swedish people are allowed by law to be happy. So make the most of it. Well done,
best wishes

Awesome:) id find a vintage sax, as they are usually better for the price, or secondhand yas either 25 or 275.
Considering that take 5 is i would say jazz, i think some may agree that you cant play wrong! and even if it sounds wrong just blag that its contemporary jazz :p
Have fun,
Pete

Are "Take 5" and "Take That" related?

Well done young Weemeat and stop taking these boring old farts so seriously.
