Any sax men on the board?24 too late to start?
lke a gurt massive recorder basically
reckon i could get the basics down in a year then?
i'm guessing i would have to pay for lessons or can you pick much up on your own? i play guitar and bass pretty well and know a fair bit of music knowledge but can't actually read music as much as i try and teach myself
the only other question is price, even a cheap sax is fairly expensive right?
I'd definitely go for lessons - there's a lot more subtlety to things like emboucher and so on that you really need to be taught, than you might need to pick up a guitar and start knocking out Ramones covers. Plus some help with learning to read music probably wouldn't go amiss!
Ps don't buy a soprano they are the worst instrument in the history of mankind
not a ramones man on guitar, i like to widdle, always liked the sax as i do enjoy a good solo
best start having a look around for lessons and a second hand tenor!
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact don't let nothin' hold you back.
If the Scatman can do it brother so can you.
