Recorderman, A friend just turned me on to this sight, and your message looking for me. Your email address was incomplete so I thought I would give you a shout here. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. //saxman
Recorder Man Here:
Thought we had already discussed this site.
Good to hear from ya. Doing any more mountain hiking with the sax? Maybe we could setup another high-elevation jam session. Course, I might want to bring my piano...
My email is MSheppard@Yahoo.com
(And my name is Matt, i.e. M@ )

M@ - I like that one, took me awhile……
I was going to the OLD Tuckermans site. I didn’t know about the new one….. dah….. I went in on the 7th, it was warm, in and out of the clouds, definitely saxaphonable and I played most of the day. Acappella is tough, if you bring that piano in, definitely let me know, I will cancel all engagements……
Some good tunes on the recorder – Danny Boy, Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Amazing Grace, Just a Closer Walk With Thee, Somewhere over the Rainbow, British Grenadiers, Battle Hymn of the Republic, America (Oh beautiful for spacious skies….)
I have a nice wood Alto recorder and the no good Bohm fingering chart. The fingerings just don’t work for me. Do you know a good teacher I can take some lessons from? It is a great ax to bring along, -far less cumbersome and responsibility than the, right serial number, next to impossible to replace, MACH VI Selmer Saxaphone that I have. It is still the “ax” of choice for the bowl, however when I go on other excursions, it would be nice to pack the little light recorder. It wouldn’t be too much trouble to pack in addition to the Sax if I could play it and we were to meet up there next year. I imagine I could pick it up pretty quick with the right teacher?
Great to make contact. Take care. //fr

pkorslund, Thanks. It's a tough gig, the pay sucks, but the return on investment is imeasurable. //sxmn
I was in Chicago last week and stopped in at the store that sells insturments to the symphony. The guy was a HUGE help as far as beginning to play the recorder. He set me up with "The Book" on playing. It was written by Maria Van Trapp too!! (the dedication is signed: Stowe, VT)
He also let me play some wooden recorders, I really liked the $400 model, but I'm not THAT serious yet.
Anyhow: Look for the Van Trapp book, it has all the fingerings, lessons, songs (lots of duets) and basic instruction. Plus "Trill Charts" which I haven't figured out yet.

Thanks M@, I will look for the book. What's the price of music? $400 for music in a stick, ......that's short money dude.
