\r\n Recorded this a while back, very interested on learning to improvise well and become a better saxophonist. I want to hear your suggestions, tips, advice and comments on my playing. I\'ve been playing approximately 4-5 years (concert and marching band).

\r\nThe improv is a solo i recorded with just the main lick established, the rest came up as i went on. Please do comment, suggest, critic, and give your opinion, very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance!\r\n

    \r\nThat\'s a nice accoustic, sounds like a church . Bit difficult to hear your real sax sound because of all the echo, but you play quite well for only 4-5 years. Keep up the good work .\r\n

    \r\nFantastic spot to play. Hopefully water aerobics held off while you were there. Enjoyed your playing a lot. Nice work.
    \r\n
    \r\nSpeaking of great spots, I found one recently - a roadway underpass. The reverb\'s not as good as in your clip, but I get the advantage of traffic noise overhead.\r\n

    \r\n Having a major echo chamber covers a multitude of sins. That\'s why everybody thinks they can sing when in a tile shower! As mrpheebee said it\'s difficult to hear your real sax sound. if you want advice on your playing you need to post a recording that\'s not inside a massive echo chamber.\r\n

      Default First original solo improv (looking forward to opinions and suggestions)

      Recorded this a while back, very interested on learning to improvise well and become a better saxophonist. I want to hear your suggestions, tips, advice and comments on my playing. I've been playing approximately 4-5 years (concert and marching band).

      My setup:
      Selmer Aristocrat AS600
      Otto Link super tone master 5*

      The improv is a solo i recorded with just the main lick established, the rest came up as i went on. Please do comment, suggest, critic, and give your opinion, very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
