    You bet... There's a number of other folks on here that have pretty extensive experience on other instruments but are new to sax, too - I really like what they come up with as their mind is coming from a different direction in some ways... it's almost like the natural "patterns" that they develop and are second-nature to them have a different sound concept that transfers in a very interesting way to the sax. Looking forward to hearing what you do.

    Well, I grew up listening and working with great tenor people, at least I've got a decent clue, but man sax has got to be the toughest thing I've jumped into, including Banjo and steel guitar, which aren't picnics. Can someone post the track somewhere?

    You can get the track from Pete Thomas.

    If you can do pedal steel, you must be pretty cool. I never could figure how to assemble the *#$#@*^ thing.

    No gigs anymore for E9 steel neck. No real country music just re-hashed 80-90s rock with a token Sho-bud thrown in, and no, you really cant force it in anywhere else. Steel pickers are having to make there own gigs with themselves for an audience via "Steel guitar pulls" Sad really. Conways gone, they don't let George sing much, the new guys s........ well never mind, on to jazz, if I'm going to go broke, at least I can go broke with a raised 9th and a flat 5th, not that there's not a pedal for those

    Default Help need people with guts!

    To volunteer to do a recording for Pete Thomas's SOTW Blues project, He said he needs about 6 more of us to go another round. I'm a one year player and I'm dumb enough to think I can play something. As the guy in the Cash Cab says:
    You in?
    C'mon as you all know by now, I'm a Mac hating, Starbucks hating, god fearing smartaass, Help me to embarrass myself.

    count me in also. been only really studying theory and technique seriously about 6 months, i know I'm still limited (to what is really in my head) but the more I force myself to be heard by peers, I think the faster I will progress.

    will you send us a link, Pete?

    i'm down. i think my extensive history on other instruments helps, just need more practice to get it out of my head clearly and effectively. and in time...
