if there are 2 eighth notes, there'll be connected automatically. I want them separated, two single eighth notes. what shall I do? I didn't find somthing in the instruction.
I hope you understand what I want to know.
I’ve been playing the Alto Saxophone for over 2 years now, and I’ve never used/owned a pad saver.
However I recently brought a new saxophone and the dealer insisted that I buy a pad saver as it is essential to prolong the life of a Saxophone,
He also mentioned that without a pad saver the saxophone pads would be at risk of moisture/humidity, which will reduce the life of the Saxophone pads to a year or two.
Now most of the advance/pro saxophonist I’ve met do not use pad savers, instead they prefer to use swabs to clean out all the moisture after playing the saxophone and keeping the case open for an hour or two to allow the residual moisture to dry out.
Moreover some(including me) believe that pad savers actually do more harm than good by retaining moisture in them, and if you keep it inside the Saxophone then it could damage the pads.
What are your thoughts about pad savers?
I have just created a group to compile a songbook of songs from Musescore (See group description for more detail, here's the link: http://musescore.com/groups/ultimate_songbook_of_musescore. We need all the people we can get to join, as it 30+ people to really kick start the path to publishing the song book, so it would be great for everybody to join!
Thanks in advance!
It is the first time I'm writing anything for strings so I started this with great uncertainty. Think it turned out rather well. This is a close to final draft.
Finally uploaded my new work for advanced-proffesional level on violin, called "Diavolo Cappricioso" in honor to Paganini (who inspired me in this piece) and also because what it wants to tell.
Here, criticise my work, please:
