Re: what can i do to help my problem with me and my saxaphone?
(I'm going to make an assumption that you're new to this)
this may be off subject... but a lot of problems can be worked out on their own by just playing the damn thing for a while (years)
like for instance... I never made a effort to get my fingers close/on the keys all the time. They did that after years of playing and me noticing that I can play faster with them closer. The same goes for typing, but that inmproved once I went to college and had msn/yahoo/aol on all the time.
same goes for tone, scales, and virtually everything else.
it's also intresting that the easy way is most often the right way... It's easier to play the scale/run right then try to boch it with extra notes and crap that shouldn' t be there.
anyway, just keep playing and don't worry about it too much.
