Re-Learning How to Play the Saxophone
Let's be honest, I really wasn't a piano/keyboard/organ player seven years ago.
My testimony is that God stirred up the little gift within me when my church needed it. My father was a great organist and musician. he understood the meaning behind the notes and how to make different sounds by just changing one note in a chord.
Anyway, for years my saxophones have taken the back burner. They had to. Each week, I was learning one, two sometimes four or five new songs. There was no time in the day to fit in an extra note.
After sitting so long, unused... I was surprised at how well each instrument (tenor sax and alto sax) aged. The tenor only has one pad that needs to be replaced. They both have a couple sticky keys. Anyway, I've created a youtube playlist where I'll be posting each video. In the beginning, I think it'll sound pretty bad. There was a lot of squaking and squeeking in the first video... Video number two was better. But I hope to do some duets with myself eventually. It should be like getting back on a bike, right? We'll see.
