I wonder if he stills makes money with this and how much. Seems like a good hustle. Show up, play the solo and leave. Beats the hell out of playing an hour show for a bunch of drunks that couldn't care less.

No idea what this thread is devoted to, (rather than George Michael Fans) but I'm surprised Epic Sax Guy hasn't been introduced yet. Both really easy riffs to play - I know how to play both on a relatively accomplished scale on the Soprano (not very well), Alto, Tenor and Baritone Saxophones, with some minor transpositions. I still don't know what this thread involves.

Other than than, instead of making a new thread, I'd love to discuss ragtime here. I've picked up some Joplin pieces again, (my first being Maple Leaf) and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. My only problem is that I thought all rags were the same, and I'm sure the only two pieces anyone can categorize as "ragtime would be Maple Leaf and the ever-present, ever-popular Entertainer.

I love the idea of it, and being a Jazz Musician, I guess I have a soft spot for it ;) Also, they're really fun to play, and look relatively hard, and sound challenging but are pretty simple.

So, here is one I'm playing now :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoWKJCSf_MA - The Easy Winners

Concert Waltz - (3/4)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SskkUtimyLI - Bethena

Mexican Serenade - (2/4)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLNORRrRyMQ - Solace


And some general ragtime that are more to the "typical" rag feel; swingy, 2/4 time, etc.

Pineapple Rag - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhQvqK67Iwc

Original Rag - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xf7p5wmfBOw


I have sheet music for most of them if anyone is able to play piano and interested - but you can find them all free on the internet on your own with a bit of searching ;)

You're a musician too? You should've mentioned that ages ago, man! I'm currently getting a performance degree on bassoon, although I'm also getting paid as a singer occasionally.

I think the thread was about how sexy sax man turned what was a prank into a money making venture. I know a lot of musicians who have put in a lot of effort and haven't had the success of this guy wearing a silly outfit and playing part of an easy song.

I play piano and a few other things but I'm not very good at all. It's just fun for me. I can't read sheet music. I have thought about buying this midi program called synthesia.

I don't know very much about ragtime but I'm big on swing from the 20's and 30's

Fats Waller is one of my favorites.

@Blortis, Synthesia is nice, but I've always preferred Sheet Music, helps my sight reading, whereas Synthesia is more for the aural learners, something I never quite picked up. Still a good program anyway.

I use Muse Score to write out Piano/Band music, and I've done a few original compositions, which I've never made public; as I'm poor, Muse Score isn't the best way to advertise. I'd love to get Sibelius 6 or 7 / Finale, but again, I can't afford luxuries at the time.


@Kasparov, I never really talk much about the "real life", it never occurred to me that you were also a musician (or I was never informed of it until now). But the bassoon is a good instrument - personally I have never played a double-reed instrument, the closest I've come is clarinet - and I'm assuming you're more orchestral based (as in Symphony/Chamber Orchestra, that sort of thing)? The most outlandish thing I've seen in a Jazz Band is a bagpipe, so maybe you could pick it up too, it's not that hard.

I've never really found playing classical music interesting, maybe that's because I've never played a string instrument, or got good at something that was able to be played in an orchestral setting. But, if you're in neither (which I doubt), you should consider it. Both are really fun.

As for singing, that's great! I know a few of my friends who were looking for a fourth in their acapella group, maybe you'd be interested? :)

That sounds extremely interesting!

There might be a few obstacles in the way such as distance and scheduling and other random stuff, but I would love to try this out if possible.

Excellent choice GeneralGror. I'm still jamming the Avalanches btw.

Kasparov that song had both pain and pleasure.

Yes, we have established that by now. Is there a particular reason you keep trying to remind us?
