that is if you assume a saxophne is of he masculine gender.....which could be if it is a Martin or Vito (be careful with Vitos they have a tendency to overreact.....goodfellas style ), perhaps he has a Monique..... or a Naked Lady or a Lady FaceJoe Jazz said:kick it in its lower nether region.....
Thanks for the tip! Will try that!crazydaisydoo said:Do you mean like the intro to "Baker Street"?
hum loudly at the same time from the back of your throat.
You will hear the hum, others won't. Record yourself doing it, and you wont hear the humming
The note you hum is up for debate, some say the same note as you are playing, others say an interval above, in truth though any old note works.
This technique is called "growling", but on a high note it screams!
It works well with a bent note, i.e loosen your mouth and gradually tighten to the note, and then the reverse
If you are trying to reproduce a really hard "rock" sound then bear in mind these guys often use mouthpieces with spoilers in them that add extra rasp (runyons?)
Good luck, it is fun, but dont overdo it on the grounds of taste and decency.
If you are talking about really high pitched altissimo playing, then.......hmmmm too difiicult for me.
