Is the Gear4Music alto a sophisticated lady?

I've been meaning to learn this one for ages. Still using the dots so nothing special. I was going to sing it sheeesh perhaps not. A funny hiss appeared from somewhere. No funny smell so it's not a gas leak.

Why does Soundcloud fail every so often?

I don't know what I've done. It's gone from soundcloud and I can't find it on the pooter. Did I dream recording it? It's put me in a mood

I've re recorded it and made sure I haven't dropped it on the way to the cafe.

The upside is with all this faffing I've got it without the dots now. Just about lol

Proper sophisticated, even turned up fashionably late.

Sounding great Colin, really fits the vibe. Is there a bit more breath noise than usual? I'm really noticing that with my stuff, so I may just be oversensitive to it at the moment!

I'm experimenting with mic position. This one is up close and playing soft with a new hard reed. I'm still discovering the range of this mic I'm using. It seems to pick up things I haven't noticed and miss things I was expecting.

I'd say not only is she sophisticated, she's also elegant. Lovely.

It's coming. I've done a re record.

It's the first time it's occurred to me, when playing with backing track, to let the band take a chorus. Let the boys at BiaB show off their wares. Like they're real or there or something.

Nice of you to be so thoughtful about the band Colin. You're going to have to teach the bass player how to solo. It can be good. Also, trading fours with a band member, just ask.

Chris..

Thanks Chris. That would be great. I'm getting quite comfortable doing the basics on BiaB and a little guidance with some of the cleverer bits I know it can do would be welcome. It's an amazing tool but then again so am I. lol
