Is the tenor saxophone a good starter instrument? I was sort of doing Ok until I tried lower notes but they are a challenge. Sometimes they work but often they come out too high. Please give me some tips in the hope that one day I wont murder every tune I play!!

Gosh, you been waiting a long time for reply!

Some people work hard to get high note harmonics! In fact, there are whole books and DVDs devoted to it!

Seeing as this is a year late, are you still out there struggling away, and what progress have you made?

Quality and condition of sax makes a lot of difference, also mouthpiece and reeds can be a lifetime's study!

Our DS has played alto for twenty years, does jam sessions and occasional paid gigs.

Who are your favourite sax players, and what sort of music do you like?

Are you/did you have lessons? Or you doing it from tutor books?
