30 Day Writer's Challenge | Day 13
Yesterday, whilst rummaging through a yard sale, my mother found a Selmer Alto Sax for $50. Now, I was a bit nervous at making this investment, but after looking over it, I'm hoping I got my money's worth. The neck will need to be recorked, I need a neck strap and a mouthpiece. It needs a nice cleaning (smells musky) and needs to have all the pads checked.
Needless to say, I want to get back into music. My favorite times through high school were band trips and just sitting in concert band playing. Now, this isn't the instrument that I truly love...the Bari Sax. -swoon- It is by far my favorite sax to play. One day I'll own one.
So I need a lot of practice. I have no idea what I'll end up doing with this, but I feel like I was given lemons. Again. And my Patriarchal Blessing talks about sharing my musical talent with others. Haven't done that in awhile!
I'm excited!! This is going to be great!
