Sure do.
Unless of course I am able to secure myself another sax by then.

Interested in an Alto? I don't think I will ever play mine again.

I haven't played an alto since 7th grade. I switched to tenor then, cause I HAD to be different.

The Baritone was as big as I was, so that was out of the question.
Would love the size of a soprano, but Kenny G has ruined that instrument for me. Can't stand the sound. An alto would be a better fit for the bus, just not sure I would be happy with it's higher sound.

Can you make an alto smoky and smoldering in its tone?

"Did you ever hear tenor sax
Swingin' like a rusty ax
Honkin' like frog
Down in a holler log?
Baby, that is Rock n' roll."

Well, you're never going to make a Tenor out of an Alto. A lot depends on what mouthpiece you use and how well developed your embouchure is. Also, a heavier horn (mine is) will sound fuller and have more presence than one of the new light weight ones. Most of the stuff I played on the Alto was more brassy than smokey. I also used it when playing with guitar players who only knew the key of E. If we both make it to Pine Mountain, I'll bring it & you can try it.


If nothing else, we can drive the dogs nuts!

That sounds like a plan...lol God help us all! Bring on the wine!

Have you ever listened to a guy named Leo P, who is phenomenal on the Baritone? YouTube him and you will be impressed. Not sure how he gets such a good sound while he is dancing all around. He never stops! I of course, did marching band and I can tell you that moving and playing would play heck with your sound. He also makes the accidental squeak, work for him...on purpose!

I haven't played since high school and miss it terribly. I considered moving to the bagpipes, but my fingers do not like the chanter....my hand span isn't big enough to adequately cover the holes. Same story with the guitar and bass...darned midget hands ruining my musical life.

Well fellow fulltimers, my time is getting close and my nerves are driving me crazy.
How did you guys deal with this?
I am very excited to be out of the house and on the open road with the love of my life on the adventure of a lifetime, don't get me wrong. I also know there is a fair amount of stress that surrounds any big life events and this is no different. I just look over all the workamper and working couples sites and can't begin to make my mind up on where I want to start this journey. I have started packing the house up and that makes me happy. But then the enormity of it all hits me and I'm and stuck in bed, wishing my brain would shut off so I could sleep. Part of me wants to remain closer (like a days drive) to home (SWFL) to make sure my daughter is able to stand on her own two feet with the house and all, but then the other part wants to be closer to the hubby's father (Long Island, NY) who is in his mid 80's...so I have been looking at possibilities between SC, NC, TN, PA, and NJ....but then my heart aches to go out west....where I've yet to venture to.

I will just be glad when all this is over with and we are hitting the road...finally.
