I have a exam for my saxophone
in about umm....3 hours or so, it will be the last exam I take and I am so fucking glad. For the past 6 years these certain exams have plagued my life, constantly practising pieces which have interest for me, im a jazz
player, and Classical
i cant stand playing.
Im not saying I dont like listening to classical, I just cant stand to play it, it doesnt sound right, I mean playing Bach on a saxophone?? its ludicious. At the moment I am studying Debussy in my music class, to narrow it down some more, I am studying Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune which he wrote in 1892-1894 and I do really like this piece I think it speaks a whole new language, and it did indeed change of lot of things around that time.
At the end of the day we all have our own opinions which is cool, I just cant stand playing something which I get no enjoyment from, and thats what its all about really, enjoyment, you all these players including my self trying to make a living in crappy clubs, and earning shit, yet they still do it.
Musicians are a special breed they love the music and will do virtually everything possible just to play.
