So you'll be trying to do better than Van Halen?Thank you very much for your very informative post.... I have no intention of trying to do better than Orbison...
Good point. I apologize. I hope you find the sheet music you are looking for. But in the meantime, I would suggest spending at least a few minutes at the end of every practice session playing around on your horn and trying to play at least portions of tunes you know by ear (no sheet music). You'll get the hang of it, and you'll find it very satisfying. Start in easy keys. And remember, just like in walking, success is getting up just one more time than falling down. It's all part of the process of learning. Again, good luck to you, grossomodo, and I appreciated your comments.I feel the urge to reply here as there is a trend in this sub-forum to say "figure it out on your own, it is easy, it is an important skill, etc...."
This forum is for beginners (like me) who do not have the experience nor the knowledge in their early stage to figure out a song. I sure wish it will come with time but now I am not able to do it. For some folks who have more experience, it might be easy to figure a song out but NOT FOR A BEGINNER. I first have to learn how to walk having fun in the process with songs that some pro players think as "completely useless" before I run.
So before you reply to a beginner in a beginner's forum "figure it out on your own, it is easy, it is an important skill" think back to your early learning stage and how it would have felt if an advanced player had given you that advise.
They did, and I'm glad of it.So before you reply to a beginner in a beginner's forum "figure it out on your own, it is easy, it is an important skill" think back to your early learning stage and how it would have felt if an advanced player had given you that advise.
Mr. Thomas, when someone posts in this forum, it does not necessarily mean they are looking for FREE music sheet but maybe a lead as to where to find the right resources on the web to purchase it. Thanks for the rest of your reply, I will keep this in mind during my progression.Plus, even if someone did have the sheet music, that song is still in copyright, so you could end up doing something illegal if you get a copy.
