    Hi Saxo, he’s got a Handel on water music and I thought I was surfer-ing!

    That’s the wave to play the sax – LOL

    He’ll have no problem keeping his reed wet!

    If you are going to try out the didgerjerrydoo exercise at home by dipping your sax bell in the toilet bowl, makes sure you flush first.

    Saxo, I don’t hate the man! I just don’t like what he did. His stoopid acting out has consequences which affects other street musicians in a negative way. That’s not the way to behave in public.

    No worries mate! I like the Careless Whisper tune in any event. Pretty catchy! “Let he who has won the palm wear it” lol 🙂

    flutter tongue is rolling it….like rolling your R’s
    some people can’t do it….kinda like not being able to pronounce a word in a different language.
    it’s a cool technique and I use it occassionaly….not nearly as much as the growl tho.
