|I can play piano and guitar and can read music but the best stuff is usually played from ear and improvisation so your nan has the best way.|

|Do you think musical instrument playing is a plus or minus in a date/relationship situation. My Gu-Zheng, in its case, could only fit in the front passenger seat of my previous car. Haven't tried it in the new car yet.|

|i play guitar, but its just a personal pleasure sort of thing, though i did play in front of 80 + people at a blackpool meet once ( with another guy ), but generally, its just for me :O)|
EDIT. this was a few years before i joined pof, another old site called mfo, fab in its day :O)

|A Nottingham (lace) band. . I used to play the clarinet but hated it. I was the only boy in the school recorder group (what does that tell you) and can still play almost any tune on that, my favourite being Casta Diva from Norma. :-) I have to say the treble saxophone should be renamed the sexophone as i am sure the above poster can testify. . . Grr woof. . (not the poster the sax. . . )|

|I played the violin rather seriously for about 12 years. Haven't really looked at it for about 10 years. I'd join up :)|

|Zenndy, I'm jealous. After watching the film Local Hero I just had to learn to play the theme tune "Going Home". I just about managed half of it but I can't play by ear amd there's no music I can find for it.|
I've got a tenor sax but haven't picked it up in years, not so easy living in a terrace house. But if I had the music for "Going Home" I would be tempted to find somewhere to play.

I've tried and tried but just find the fingering too difficult.
I used to play the clarinet and the piano. I want to be able to play the piano like I used to when I was doing my a-levels, Michael Nymans score to the film The Piano was always my favourite.

Where do you get stuck on the Michael Nymans, I always find it gets easier as it progresses but then that's just me. I like to improvise that song anyway.
No I didn't ever get stuck with it, I no longer have the strength in my fingers to play as I used to, practice is the only remedy to get it back which I don't have the time or the privacy for just now.
vvvv wtf? Shut it, who asked you anyway.

|I've often been accused of blowing my own trumpet but since I haven't actually got one, I've stuck to drums, percusion and the odd foray into keyboards.|

|Thanks but that's for piano. I have no musical training nor understanding so can't transcribe that for a sax.|

It's in D major but tenor sax plays an octave and a major second lower than the written pitch, so you'd need to transpose it an octave and a major second higher than the piano pitch to sound in concert pitch D major. I think that means the concert D root note for the tenor sax is C.

OOOoerr! Icarusi. Daver said he had no musical understanding so I doubt very much if he followed any of that - I certainly didn't! It's all digital - if he bought it, maybe you could transpose it for him??....
There's nothing to stop a solo transposing instrument playing directly from a piano score, it'll sound ok. It only needs to be tranposed if playing with other instruments, or along with the record in the correct key.
