This will not come as news to my neighbours, but I have started to play my saxophone again. It is one of those instruments that only works at loud volumes. Luckily for them, I don’t have enough strength in my jaw to play for more than five minutes before the muscles give up and it sounds like I’m murdering piglets, and I have to stop.
I am teaching myself to play, so it’s taking a while, and i hadn’t picked it up for almost a year before last week. I am slightly put off by just how loud it is, and that everyone in a 2 mile-radius can hear the squeaks and howls when it goes wrong.
The saxophone might look fiendishly complicated, but it’s not nearly as bad as it looks as if it might be. But it’s hard enough.
You’re a vegetarian!
erm… I’m not actually killing piglets (I’m sure there’s something in the lease to prohibit stuff like that) I’m just making noises like I am killing piglets.
Easy present for your neighbour this year then. Ear defenders !!! LOL – Just thought I’d drop by and wish you a merry xmas and new year, as I usually only trawl through the blogs from work in the quiet time, and I”m finishing mid-week for the year. ( sadly finishing for good in March, but that’s a nother story. Anyways, have a good one, and I’ll catch up with you again next year !!!
have a merry christmas, sir! (tho I’ve probably left this too late!)
