Thanks guys,
You feel a bit like a flagellant playing the next voice in multitrack after playing one a bit messy, hehe.
Lots to learn about yourself and your bad habits.

Cheers, Guenne

In the medley thread, it was mentioned that a few soprano and bari renditions might balance things out. Here is one on soprano, though I'm really hoping others who are far better than me will post.

That was fun! Thanks you.
It's great to hear the little saxes joining in. There's something jolly about a soprano sax version, in comparison to a tenor, which tends to be a bit more serious.
Who knows, maybe we'll get a 'nino as well.

I think it's their little elf-like voices.

The only trouble with this tune is that it's horribly sticky! :doh:

It keeps coming back hunting me all day long. :w00t:

Well I suppose it is Xmas so in order to lower the tone and lend support here's my tenor version.I didn't think the the final altissimo G note was going to crack as the reed is getting a bit soft but it got there just!

A good version. Many thanks.

Speaking as someone who has never managed to play an altissimo G, I am in awe of anyone who can. :thumb:

I liked the modulation too.
