Hey guys,

I've been lurking here for quite a while now, so i thought i would join up and say hello.

I've been playing for about 18 years now, i have had wide range of experience from running jazz quartets, big bands and playing for horn sections around the country. I hold a degree from Exeter university in Jazz, and currently have a growing teaching studio at my home based in South Derbyshire.

for the last 4 years i have been playing for DC Fontana (www.dcfontana.com) which is an original's band with roots in rnb, soul and mod. Having a blast with them right now recording and playing pretty much anywhere in the UK and further abroad.

I'm hoping that i can bring some good advice to the forums, and having a nice place to chill at the same time...

So hello!

Jamie.

Thanks guys,

This seems like a great place. I have been lurking round saxontheweb.net as well, but that is mainly USA, so it's good to know there is a dedicated UK forum as well.

Hey Sunray,

thanks for the kind welcome! We can try in the very modest tiny little room that i call a home recording setup, heh we may have to que outside the room like in the 40s waiting to do a solo with a band behind the stage :)

As for advice, i will certainly do all that i can to help.

Jamie.

Welcome Jamie. Does this now mean I can ask you things on here for free instead of having to pay for lessons?! :w00t:

Oh well never mind, I guess I'll have to keep paying then :(

All jokes aside, Jamie has been my teacher for a while now and he has been invaluable, I am more than happy to pay him for his knowledge and experience. Well, this depends if I can get through my Grade 1 in a couple of weeks ;}

Every village has its idiot.

Mind you, it's pretty good, getting paid for doing nothing.

Just don't ask Sunray if he's got six toes, he gets very upset.

"Silly ole Sod" ;}

Everyone knows we all have ten of the little buggers - [As long as we have two feet that is]. :)))

Oh! And of course ...

As long as you and you buddies haven't been round collecting those extortionate annual fees ... :w00t:
