I am a dead set newcomer to the instrument, how to play it and the music it generates although I did spend my whole childhood listening to my father play and practice his alto.
While I admire the sounds made by the great sax players of the past, I simply want to be able to sit down and play a melody of a favourite song for my own amusement. No embellishments, tricks, no big band or orchestra stuff.
For example, I want to be able to pull out the sheet music for Let It Be and play the melody to myself.
Does that sound reasonable?
Are there artists out there that fall into that sort of category that I could listen to?
cheers and thanks for your help.
