Thanks JB. So I was practicing “Night Train”. Slow Swing in my sax Classics song book. making the High D sound like a train whistle. The music is 4 pages so I need to turn the page. So I need to to print all 4 pages so i don’t have to turn the pages. Printer crashed, broke. So I ordered a new HP printer from hp.com. So I can’t print Johnny’s new release, “Donna” by Richie Valens until my new printer arrives. In the meantime a new food processor was ordered, Medina Spirit won the Kentucky Derby, My wife picked the winner. I’m blowing “Night Train” in Bb. Lots of 1 5 4.
Good one William, looking forward to hearing your recording of Night Train.
i’m currently working on “What’d i Say” – hard going had to slow the track down to keep up, sheet reading is so tricky to get right for a novice like me.
Memorising the chord (arpeggios) is starting to pay off, i looked at the chords on a music sheet, and for the 1st i managed to play 12 bars without fumbling around the chords – got a long way to go, got to get used to playing the chords on music sheets its a strange concept, just in terms of playing straight chords (arpeggios) and not improvising.
Ya I like Johnny’s and I like Jimmy Forrest’s “Night Train”. Jimmy Forest’s is three pages long not four. Jimmy’s backing track is a slow swing. I like Johnny’s ending from the Coda to the end. I have both versions on my music stand, both are in Bb. My new printer arrived yesterday. took all day to install the drivers, with the help of a live technician from HP. “Night Train” will take a long time to learn. I’ll blow it every day.
