Was just looking through youtube. Found this on some techniques. What he fails to mention is how the rubber band plays a part. Must admit I took nearly nothing in from the video while I was wondering about that...

I like the sound of "Dooden" better.

This will come in handy with the Bird playalong that Steve John B sent me.
I really need to up my game with articulation and tonguing to get anywhere near full tempo with this stuff.

Rubber band , running repair for broken spring. Also for self accompanying bass line in one note samba and for firing paper pellets at folk talking during your solo. :cool:

Why can't you just miss out the ghosted note altogether I couldn't hear it anyway that lackey band really detracts from his credibility don't you think ....John

Ps how do you determine the strength of the lackey band required

You can.

However on the example on my page I have used it alternating with a real note. It's interesting to apply degrees of ghosting for extra expression, so you can vary the technique from 1% (practically inaudible) to 99% (almost the same as a proper note)

Yes John, might just do that you know, last time i went to Manchester was back in January 87 while the moors murder inquiry had been re-opened, bit spooky driving over Saddleworth in thick snow in an old land rover middle of the night thinking about those poor kids..

Your more than welcome to have a blow on any of my sax's as is anybody on the forum....been using the King a bit lately and thinking more and more about a Silversonic tenor all the time!
