Hey, it worked for me!bluesaxgirl said:Kind of reminds me why everyone at my school decided to play the alto and bari sax: it had the same fingerings of the recorder they had to play in the fourth grade.
Though drums are my main instrument, I played recorder for years. Then in high school I dabbled with the bassoon for year (double reeds are tough!), then bass clarinet for a bit. Then I heard Harry Carney with Duke Ellington, and I had to make that sound (or a very rough approximation). Finding out that sax fingering was more or less like a recorder was cool, but also finding out how loud the bari could be was a 15 year-old's dream!
