Big Johnny • Jul 19, 2013 I play bassoon, bass clarinet, and contrabass clarinet. Comments [user=46952]Whitehawk[/user] I've only just started playing bassoon. I used to play flute, but then was asked to switch because of the lack of bassoons. (There's only 5 0r 4 combined from all the bands 5th grade to 12th.) [user=46365]Big Johnny[/user] I've only been playing bassoon for about 5 months. I'm our schools very first, and only bassoon. [user=46952]Whitehawk[/user] Impressive. How's bassoon going? [user=46365]Big Johnny[/user] Quite well. I have all low octave notes, and up to a high F sharp above the staff line memorized. I'm already playing bassoon for the high school pep band, and jazz band (and I'm only going into eighth grade. [user=106271]saxman_cometh[/user] I've been playing Baritone Saxophone for about a year now. [user=46365]Big Johnny[/user] Nice! Bari is one of my favorite saxophones. [user=106271]saxman_cometh[/user] That is awesome. [user=46365]Big Johnny[/user] Here is a video of a contrabass sax. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYMWDbJC8wM [user=98898]iArrange[/user] I'm the only Bari Sax at our band. We don't have any tubas either. [user=46365]Big Johnny[/user] No tubas? I was the only low woodwind for 6th and 7th grade. [user=106271]saxman_cometh[/user] It sucks when your the only low instrument. I have two tubas to back me up in Wind Ensemble, a string bass and 4 trombones in Jazz band (not completely, though), and three tubas in Marching Band. [user=106271]saxman_cometh[/user] Musicore? [user=132028]Terran[/user] I'll have played tenor sax for a year at the start of the next semester. I'm in eighth grade and started on clarinet. There was an abundance of them, and I didn't want to stick to clarinet anyways. At the start of this year I was my school's only tenor player, and right after the start the first chair clarinetist picked up a tenor as a secondary for jazz band. 4 newbies have just picked up tenor and are still making the adjustment, but I'm the schools section leader. [user=46365]Big Johnny[/user] Cool. [user=143943]aston.a[/user] I played cornet in the band before, but from christmas i have changed to bass clarinet, because the tuba player leave. So I´m the only low instrument player except from the trombones -.- [user=53367]Kieler83[/user] I started playing clarinet and all kinds of saxophone 21 years ago and since 5 years I´m playing bass clarinet in our orchestra and sometimes bari sax, too. [user=183815]BariMaster[/user] Bari Sax player over here. I just want to say, I have been through a crazy and passionate journey with my bari sax over the years. And the sad part is, I don't even own one. Which means by a certain time I will have to return my school bari sax to the corporation. It will be a depressing day. [user=217301]MonkeyDigger[/user] I think you can guess what instrument I play... [user=46365]Big Johnny[/user] Bassoon, nice! Same here. [user=146767]ZeDoctor[/user] Bass Clarinet. Mainly Bass Clarinet. :D [user=1198836]Bassitonor[/user] I play bassoon and contrabassoon. [user=6409826]Oleksandr Kashlyuk2[/user] I absolutely love the bassoon and the contra, although the contra that I play now is broken. [user=998006]KeldeoJustified[/user] Main low woodwind I play is Bass Oboe :p It is an octave below the regular oboe :3 [user=11278826]ray8am clarinet[/user] does a clarinet count as a low woodwind. it can play both high and low :) [user=6105546]mike320[/user] I mostly played Bari Sax in school, but switched to tuba my senior year. [user=6820761]angryducks[/user] When I was still in School, I played Bass Clarinet and Bari Sax for Jazz Band.
