I'm new to the forum...thought I'd start off a thread to say hi! I'm living in East London and am wanting to take up the sax. Unfortunately I don't know many people who do play so don't really know where to start!! Anyway thought this might be a good place to ask questions and what not. Hope to see ya more in the forums!!

Hi Marthelee

A Morphine fan?

Like a mirror I'm nothing. I'm nothing. I'm nothing till you look at me.
I'm like a mirror. I'm like a mirror. I'm nothing till you look at me.
I'm like a mirror. I'm like a mirror. I'm nothing till you look at me.
I'm like a mirror. I'm like a mirror. I'm nothing till you look at me.
Martha Lee.
Leave your world, come to me. I'm closer to you than I seem.
Wish upon this melody and come to me Martha Lee.

Leave your world and join me soon. Leave your world behind.
You can take the Saturn Line. In no time, no time.

I know a ship that's leaving soon. Oh, in fact this afternoon.
So don't forget your parachute. I'll be there to catch you.

And you my future constellation. Climb up here in the sky with me.
Leave your world and come to me. I'm closer to you than I seem.

Oh, wish upon this melody and come to me. Come to me.
Leave your world and join me soon. Martha Lee. Martha Lee.

I know a ship that's leaving soon. In fact this very afternoon.
So don't forget your parachute and I'll be there to catch you.

I'm like a mirror. I'm like a mirror. I'm nothing till you look at me.
I'm like a mirror. I'm like a mirror. I'm nothing till you look at me.

Hi There!

A Big Welcome from me. Main issues in starting to play sax:-

1. Choose which sax you want to play - many start on Alto or Tenor sax, some start with Soprano and less start on Baritone.
2. Decide on your budget and get the best that you can afford. You can hire a sax to see whather you like it, before making a lasting commitment.
3. You need things like a mouthpiece, ligature, reeds and a strap as well.
4. Contacting a teacher is a good idea - lots advertise online, and choose someone who you like the sound of, and have spoken to.

Lots of advice on all the above is available on the forum, and there are some members in East London who may be able to offer some help/advice.
Why do you want to learn sax - any particular reason? What music do you like>
Anyway, do feel free to ask any questions!

Kind regards
Tom

At the White Hart, near Sainsbury in Whitechapel, they now do jazz every Sunday evening. Usually three to five saxes on stage. Strongly recommended.
