I'm a nice guy
I was wrong: the topic did get hits. Failed to figure in the "share your own stuff" factor.
Its almost an embarrassing subject now. So by now the whole freaking world knows that for 38 years "he doesn't practice enough" and even when he does? Plays too many high notes. But its a fact.
Time to do something about it.
Perhaps sometimes a shortcoming can create a style. Can't think of an example at this moment but I believe its true. Didn't Jesse Owens walk on crutches when he was a boy? Yet his Olympic records held for many years.
- Sight reading is weak
- Not always attentive to listening and blending
- Sometimes overcooks the dynamics
Assets (listed last because, well, you always want to end on high note, right?):
- Good tone
- Love to improvise
- Diligent in preparing charts for a gig
Assets...can busk loudly and get tips for self...can look hip and hold a horn...
liabilities: noise ordinance issues with the local sheriffs. Lousy sight reader...bad intonation, Arbans studies collect dust...
Major liability: old
Major asset: old
Good swing style.
Enjoy playing solos!
Bad practice habits/hardly practice at all (This will change as I am now in college and finally have a private teacher!)
Ok at sight reading, tend to stop playing when I mess up
Have a habit of putting too much mouthpiece pressure on my lips.
Still trying to cut the habit of using the dreaded pinky ring.
Still don't know all the scales (college and practice will fix that!)
wow -- I feel almost NORMAL now, hearing this.
isn't that backwards???
YOU a NICE GUY
Okay so I'll bite
Nice tone in most of my registers
Sense of humour
I think phrasing is my strongest strength. I've played a few Operatta and Opera tenor roles so I phrase in a really lyrical manner
Sense of humour
Range is limited (at least the controlled bit is)
Reading music and sight reading
