    Re: Do you play?

    Meh, a few years back I was pretty good with a tenor saxophone. I'd still play it now if I could afford one, the one I had was lent to me through the school.

    I was part of a school saxophone quartet. It was fun, took first place in a tourney for our performance of the Mission: Impossible theme.

    Re: Do you play?

    Back in middleschool and highschool I played alto saxaphone. Hehe our band tried to play the Mission Impossible theme for the first year at high school and we couldn't do it. Our xylophone player couldn't keep up with the beat, so everytime we played, it the entire band would get thrown off, and it would end in one huge mess. However, I was also in the concert band, which was seperate from the grade bands, and the concert band was kickin.

    I'm not in a real band or anything, but my friends and I all just get together and jam. Just doin covers of stuff just for the fun of it. Right now we've just been messing around with some songs by Jet, and System of A Down.

    Ah, well, I can imagine the M:I theme being difficult for an entire band. Luckily for us, it was just a sax quartet consisting of two altos, a tenor (me), and a baritone. It worked out pretty well. I was the lead most of the time, you'd be surprised how much of that song requires the tenor over the altos.

    Re: Do you play?

    I used to play piano when I was a little kid
    now, I can't remember shit and I'm the only member in my family that doesn't play an instrument
    all of my cousins can play some sort of instrument
    either piano, flute, or something
    me? I'm too lazy to learn
    though I'd love to learn how to play guitar
    but... *sigh*... my laziness...
    -_-
    I love my girlfriend.

    Jeez! I was surprised at how much every song has more tenor parts than altos. I felt ripped off when playing cuz tenors would always get the best sax bits. Of course, if their part was really cool I'd just skip the sheet music and play their part by ear.....my band teacher never really liked that though hehe.

    Man, this thread made me pull out my old alto sax again. Haven't played it, let alone opened the case for like 5 years now. I also found the cd that my highschool band made back in grade 9, which also has M:I theme on it, as well as some other horribly played tunes hehe.
