Sorry my english are not so good.You mean that tenor sax has disappointed you? Merry christmas and a happy new year Josh!I'm Josh from Berkeley, CA. I'm 16, started playing tenor last year after playing clarinet and bass clarinet for a few years. This instrument has completely drawn me in and I like to think my learning curve has been pretty steep as a result. Anyway, I've been on this forum a number of times and always found it useful and entertaining. I have posted here before but just a couple times and I figure I ought to get on this thread.
Hello Gibbs! For how long do you play clarinet? Well i'm on alto since last August and i handle in a way the chromatic scale.I m very proud that i am introduced in music again.Merry christmas!He was referring to the Tenor Saxophone really making a difference in his interest. In other words he "LOVES" the tenor Sax. I'm Vern from SW Michigan. I'm 59 and been playing saxophone since (looks at watch and calendar) since Dec. 8, 2012. That is when I bought my Orpheo Alto Saxophone. I play by ear and besides learning the scales and now working on the Blues/Jazz, I can play many Chrismas carols, Hey Jude, some other stuff as well. I have a way of hearing a note and when I fiddle on it long enough on the clarinet or saxophone, I can begin to play it. Drives my wife crazy as she, too, is starting to learn to play the clarinet, and learns the note by note and can play Hot Cross Buns on the clarinet, and I pick up it or the Sax and play "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" or that opening song of "My Three Sons".
I joke when I look at my watch, but I really have only been playing a saxopone a couple of weeks. I'm gifted I guess in knowing how to hear music and hear the notes I play and correct myself. I bought an Alto Orpheo back on Dec 8th of this year. Now I am very interested in getting a tenor. I know I now have TOO MANY mouthpieces in the drawer!Hello Gibbs! For how long do you play clarinet?
