Hi guys! Cheers for the feedback! Thanks for commenting on it treeblast! Yeah good idea about the altissimo.
fvpennell, this wasn't exactly practice, this was an improvisation I did after a day of sending emails to venues for my band Roller Trio (
).... so hopefully people will hear the frustration in the piece. Don't know what to say to you, we obviously have different tastes. I think some of the most melodic pieces are the more experimental ones. And this definitely was my 'heart and soul' coming through. So sorry about the 6.5 mins.
I play a Yamaha Custom Z, I'm not sure what my mouthpiece is... the writings scratched off, bit annoying I might post a photo on here to see if one of you could help me identify it. I haven't found a better one for me though! Vandoran Java 2.5 reeds... not my first choice but they seem to be the most consistent and I'm a bit poor at the moment. It upsets me when you get a box of reeds and only 2 of them are good.
Could anyone post examples of players with a similar tone that you prefer?
Thanks a lot everyone! Means a lot that people are up for checking out and helping random a fellow musician.
