I know this has been covered in another thread, mostly by a Canadian woman I believe, who plays on the street a lot, but I couldn't find it. I've been practicing solo (I used to play along with CD's or homemade backing tracks) It's pretty taxing, but what a great way to simply get better My question is, do you keep the songs short and sweet, (head, one or two solos, head)? Picking out songs is no problem, it's endurance. How many songs in a "set" do those who do this play before coming up for air? Do you eschew rhythm, as in a built in metronome in your head, and just phrase as your wind allows? I'd love to check out street players, but I live in the very sterile midwest where this kind of thing is rare. I'm not currently a "Working Sax Pro", but I figured you guys would have the best advice of all the catagories on this site. Thanks in advance.
