I have a Sequoia straight sax (I think it may be the one you liked!), but I thought a curvy would be more comfortable for occasional playing. And it is.
Very impressive. Sounds great!There's a version from the Clarinet Society for saxophone quintet (SAATB). I couldn't resist.
My first attempt was slower than their recommendation, 'cos its a ballad. It was too slow, and it ended up as a glutinous mess. So I went back to the recommended speed.
This was the first outing for my new Bauhaus Walstein curvy soprano.
Very good!I have a couple of arrangements of "Over The Rainbow" for saxophone quartet, and this is the slightly easier one.
Over The Rainbow - Sax Quartet Rhys V1.mp3 - Box
PS I think I have worked out that I need a slightly different reverb when mixing together four dry saxophones compared with one dry saxophone and a backing track. This uses a "medium room" reverb. And I haven't used any compression on any of the saxes.
Friendly reminder....To keep me motivated I'm going to commit to recording this one, not sure how long it will take as I have to set all my recording stuff up again, it's been boxed since we moved last June. I was also having trouble with software recording programmes too before I packed it all away!
Lovely! Yes, post more often!Well a promise is a promise!
