Re: Help with 'Free as a bird' by the beetles

It's a simple lick that's basically Bb, F, A, Eb, F. Nice Vid by the way. BTW it's Beatles.

Trivia: I grabbed my sax cuz it was on the stand and It's easier on my alto sax at G, D, F, C, D. 8)

Re: Introduction and Armstrong 80 Question

Re: Spitty Mouth

Swallow before you start and when you can as you play. Over time it will become part of your method.

Re: How to Clean Muramatsu Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

I've just thrown them in the wash as needed, you know, when the dirt starts to accumulate. I still have microfiber cloths (called ranger rags in the Army) that are still effective after 20 years of use. Here is a reference: http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-Microfiber

I have so many piano books that I use for play-alongs. This is a much nicer collection. Thanks!

Re: Value of Zentner piccolo

There are two on eBay for around $1400 in good condition. I guess it would depend upon how much you hope to get from the sale?
