Thinking some of the posts not doing their bestm aybe freezing up on over ten posts needing techy stuff, just saying.Thanx heaps @sxpoet for sharing your thoughts about where you’ve been and howz i’s been going, impressed, in fact i am gonna start a record this day in it’s peculiar book all about my individual continuing daily adventures in brassland, it will help out soon enough, and give some encouragement later. To achieve one must heap up small things. Some daze ima bit slow. Anyways you certainly raise some good points about juggling, stuff like, say, fingering excercises, long tones, songs, scales, mouthpiece embouchere and separating tones, ear training, metronome work, sight reading, play along to MP3’s lesson video tutorials by Johnny, lung and breathing improvement etc. You have been a great help to me in my journey thus far with much on line input and sage advice, lots good thyme(s) too. Also great links and apps and it helps others significantly being with their own learning curves, that is from the clarity and focus you share from the time you’ve so far put in [which improves’ and moreso hastens the learning curve of others in good stead.] Cheers. Good idea your excercise record book thang. I’ll borrow it. .
At the end of the book somebody might even add a postscript on our accounts. Eee!!, death by saxophone?
Thanking you heaps mate, you’re “simply the best” !!

I was working on “Another Saturday Night” moving on to “The Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and to day it’s “Wave” by Jobim. Hard to stick with one piece of music.April 19, 2018 at 4:49 am #70251saxomonicaParticipant

how does on count a Bossa Nova beat?April 22, 2018 at 6:49 am #70363Anonymous
Hi William, see if this page can help you.April 22, 2018 at 8:57 am #70364Anonymous

I’m still WAVING with Stan GetzApril 23, 2018 at 6:45 am #70397
Thanks Jeff. I listened to the piano Bossa Nova. There’s a lot to contend with, the count, the beat, the rhythms, the melody, the saxophone keys, and on down the road man and boy. I ordered some Stan Getz music. When I use Stan Getz the melody gets lost in tricky fingering.April 23, 2018 at 11:28 pm #70442Anonymous
Hi William, it looks like a very tricky rhythm to play. One chap said that we have to first master the Samba before tackling Bossa Nova.
I think you’re very brave, but you do live closer to Brazil. I’m still trying to get my ordinary 4/4 timing constant – lol.
