I'm on a trip to Puerto Rico for a family gathering. I embarrassingly left my tenor, which I meant to bring, inside when we were going out to the car. I've done a lot of listening (as usual) and singing/vocal improvisation (I even figured out a nice little triad enclosure melody very much in the spirit of Matt Otto), but I was wondering if anyone has advice on other ways I could practice without my horn for the next few days. Thanks everyone.

Just be thankful that you left it secure in your house.....not forgotten on the ground outside your garage.

Thanks for giving me permission, Pete. That reminds me of an experience I had last year. I had pneumonia for two weeks and didn't play the whole time. When I got better and picked up the horn again, I was happily surprised to find that my tone was far better than it had been before.
Captain, though I don't have a garage, I'm very thankful I didn't leave it on the street or something...

well, you can always do fingerings without the horn. you can use a piece of wood or something if you want a surface to remind you of a saxophone, but i like to just imagine the fingerings, pretending the sax is in my hands and keeping it all cerebral and whatnot.
