TENOR, soprano, alto, baritone
I was wearing a Hawaiian shirt last night at the outdoor show with about 5000 people. Went to put the tenor down and grab the baritone but it seemed that my shirt was hung up in the sax somewhere around the low C key - and it wouldn't pull out. I said okay, it must be snagged on a spring tip so I'll slide it off - that worked, but it took the spring tip off its perch at the same time. I had no choice but to stand there and with my bare hands (who carries a spring hook in their pocket) and try to push the D# key spring back over the perch and catch it. I did it but that was a first in 60 years. Actually I was lucky it didn't break the spring - I would have been forced to wedge the D# shut.
