ORDERED THE WRONG REED
Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Hi everyone. I believe mistakes are supposed to happen sometimes. I ordered from Amazon a # 3 reed for the soprano sax, I thought. Got a notice that the reed would be delivered to me tomorrow. I checked the order and it was for Allyson, my alto. That might not be a bad thing. Sometimes the stiffer the reed, the better tone out of the horn. So I went back and ordered another one for the soprano. I doubled checked the order this time, so I won't be getting two for the alto and none for the soprano. My error..I just hope I can play on the stiffer reed. Now I am using a 2.5 strength.I really don't expect all of you who are reading this to understand it....but a few of you will know what I mean.
I had 2 blessing gifts today. I have a friend who is a saxophone teacher at our University of Florida and she suggested I send her a video of my practicing and she will try and analyze what I need to change. How special is that.
My other gift was from another friend who knows I love teddy bears and also our Tampa Bay Bucs football team even when they are horrible, and our Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey team. So he came over today with 2 bears...The real deal from the National Hockey League..a darling bear dressed in a onesie with the TB Lightning logo on the front and on the sleep cap, The other is a bear dressed as a Tampa Bay Bucs cheer leader, again the NFL logo. I'll get a picture of them tomorrow. and put them up on my page. They are so cuddly cute.
Well, I see I got done with this blot at 11:45 pm...I didn't blog yesterday. Oh well. Tomorrow's a new month..a new beginning I'll tell you about tomorrow.
Sleep well and pleasant dreams dear friends.
