I am new to this forum and totally new to the saxophone.
I play or play around with a lot of instruments -- but up till now no wind instruments unless you count a harmonica or shofar.
My wife is taking piano lessons, I thought it would be fun to learn a new instrument along with her.
I decided on saxophone for a bunch of reasons:
Its totally differnt from my other instruments (which are mostly string instruments).
My wife called dibs on the piano.
My friends I jam with are all guitars -- we need something different, and good for blues.
Clarinet was out because with the other group I play with we already have one.
Trumpet would be cool, but piano and trumpet duets?
That plus saxes sound so great said go for the sax.
So i rented one, signed up for lessons and have been playing it for 3 days now. Its been total fun, though I know there is a lot of learning in front of me.
