    Would it be really bad if I'd say that I don't really like saxophones?

    Oh, I don't hate them, I guess I just heard too much squeekyness in the 80's and that spoiled them for me ... I like double-basses though :thumbup1:

    WARNING!!! Music nerd stuff follows.



    Don't know if this counts:


    My beloved 1970s Stratocaster, (her name is Simone), has a built-in MIDI pickup, which gets routed through a Roland GR50, and thence to my synth rack.

    Nowadays, I occasionally noodle with her with a sax patch on a synth, but I don't think I ever actually recorded anything "saxy" into the public domain.


    There are several YouTube videos of Simone (and her Ibanez and PRS sisters) making slightly more guitar-like noises. To find them, you just have to guess the name of the band that Fluffi was in. :mf_prop:


    *I will offer a small hint to those forum members who were guildmates of Fluffi... (*waves at Wendy*)*

    ... a very, very long time ago, a guildmember called Layla held an "everybody sings a song" evening. Fluffi sang a song which still makes me cry when I hear it. All you have to do is remember the lyrics of the song, and do a Google search for them. :)

    ...for the rest of you, try to remember a song that Garrison Darker liked... (now, there's a man who could out-drink all of you)...

    I was so proud, but I never told him.

    Very insightful indeed Fluffi.

    Although, I'm seeing a distinct lack of favourite Pokemon.

    Ok,

    Which pokemon would be best at playing the sax.

    I say Blastoise to be honest.

    Any other suggestions?
