Next time the group meet I'll bring my bass and we can do a duet with sax backing. I'll have to do some practice , it's not been out of it's case for 3yrs.
You're assuming I can play!

It looks lovely but six strings must make it very difficult to get around.

I'll let you know... If I get on with it, I'll commission a short scale one, possibly multi-scale

A week in Suffolk last week getting to grips with bookbinding. The building I was staying in dates to early 1400s. My room was the one on the left with the canopy over the window.

The classroom for the week was on the upper floor of this old mill

Only one of my music groups has managed to meet at all in the last 16 months. We resumed about 5 weeks ago. Having to rehearse under some constraints. Last session of the term was this evening.

Beethoven Egmont overture and Haydn symphony no.99

Hope you don't expect the Octet to play that:confused:
Well.... the cello part for the finale is in that pic above, it starts halfway down the left hand page. Bari can play cello line....

Bass clef and three flats is perfect for a bari sax - treat it as if it is treble clef and just ignore the three flats. But tenor clef is trickier.

Yes, cellists, bassoonists, and trombone players have the dubious pleasure of needing to read three clefs to play their music: bass (f4), tenor (c4), and treble (g2). As a baritone singer, I sometimes have to sing 'octave treble' which is treble clef that sounds and octave lower than written. And, bass viol uses bass and alto (c3) clefs, and tenor uses (bizarrely) alto and treble.... Treble pitched instruments get off lightly....

Aren't all balls curved ... ?
I'm no expert, but I think a 'curved ball' is a baseball reference to a ball with spin on it, or possibly swing? Rather like say a leg-spinner's googlie. Anyway, it's something that doesn't do what you expect it to do...

Indeed ... but the phrase is 'curve ball'. :)
