Using a USB mic bought from the local music shop. Yamaha Soprano Saxophone.



Rated 1.5 / 5 stars



Soprano sax is one of my favorite instruments and it is not supposed to sound like that. I am terribly sorry for the negative review, but it sounds like you were strangling your instrument.

Try lightening your tongue, using STEADY air and keeping it blowing through your tongue (not stopping it). Keep your tempo in mind (possibly a metronome?) and practice, practice, practice. Squeaking isn't acceptable when you can re-record. I can't offer any specific advise, since I'm a brass player, but try just to get INTO the song. Make it musical!

Other then that, it sounds like it could be a good song. If this is an existing song, might I recommend listening to it on repeat for about thirty minutes and really getting a feeling for it?

Again, I'm sorry for the negative review. I realize it isn't easy posting your performance on the internet. :3
