    Thanks for that. Sax players are few are far between around here. Would you believe that there is only ONE dedicated woodwind music shop (store) in the whole country?

    I might try asking my teacher to observe me though - bearing in mind it's not a pleasant task, but she may oblige. :)

    Thanks for the advice, and the good laugh. I do polish the reeds (see above) and try to suck in when I can (mostly to disguise the fact that my stomach is on the rotund side).

    Polishing the reeds doesn't seem to have had much effect. But it was partly your post, and another I saw elsewhere that prompted me to ask about synthetic reeds and if they might allow the water to roll off more than cane.

    But I will try inhaling harder. Bearing in mind that me and several politicians have never inhaled anything in our lives. :) I might need to borrow a suction hose.

    Stephen, I suggest a glass of whiskey before you play.

    It won't stop the spit but it will help you worry less about it.

    :-D I may have to come off the "wagon" (pretty much a non-drinker most of my life). Two wine gums and I'm tipsy. Would diet coke work?
