Great work, Mark! It's unbelievable you've only been playing for 9 months! Jeanette gave me a tip to look this BOTM up too (as a good way of practicing for long notes). I'll post my recording later in the month.
Looking forward to hearing it.Great work, Mark! It's unbelievable you've only been playing for 9 months! Jeanette gave me a tip to look this BOTM up too (as a good way of practicing for long notes). I'll post my recording later in the month.
My apologies, Mark, I read Rob Pealing's post above yours and mistakenly quoted his '9 months' in my reply to you. 3+ years makes a lot more sense! It doesn't sound like you're a slow learner. Although I've gradually picked up different styles of Big Band music during the last 10 years or so, I haven't improved my technique at all during that time. So as far as the instrument goes, we're on about the same level.A bit longer than that Mike just over 3 years now so a slow learner. But looking forward to your recordings.
Absolutely beautiful!Well a promise is a promise so here is my version.
It is starting to make me cry for all the wrong reasons. The more I try and improve the worse it is getting. I have started producing a squeak I've never had before on sop so time to call it a day on this one, apologies, it is too sharp , not totally in time but a line in the sand can now be drawn.
I'm going to wash the other love in my life.......(Mx)
So you have done another recording.@Jeanette, Here is one from an inexperienced player. I took some time off from my homework, It is not note perfect and I lost the tone in the last 2 bars when I tried to make the last 7 beats more interesting. I would be grateful for suggestions for improvement.
