Welcome all new members, please introduce yourselves.
Welcome on board, another Scandinavian:Hi
Name is øyvind, from Norway. Im 38 years old.
Played clarinet in my teen around 3-4 years. Tried on and off some sax somewhere but did not stick with it.
Heard and bought a soprano sax some years ago, and only now really started playing. Have mayby 75 hours practising this year. Just absolutely love that sound
Welcome Eric!- I've read that Bobby Keys cited Little Walter as his primary influence in how he approached his playing, and he didn't fare too badly. Very cool but I guess not terribly surprising you are finding them synergistic. I have a set of Special 20s I just bought thinking I would like to expand my utility, but keep putting it off thinking I have a bit more (ok, maybe a lot more) to learn on saxophone and keys first. Looking forward to your contributions in the doubling section and on the forum in general.Eric from Charleston SC. Longtime harp player - blues, country, lots of jazz. Treated myself to a tenor as a 60th birthday present (bucket list item) and getting to where I'm not terrible at it. Recently added an alto; totally in love with the sound. Semiretired, so I can practice at least a couple hours a day. Turns out the more I practice on the saxes my harp playing gets better, and vice versa.
