Top tip

Always remember that when your saxophone is cold, it squeaks. You must warm it up before you start to play.Then when your nice next door neighbour comes round and they see your sax lying in its open box, and they enquire about how your saxophone playing is going, you won’t offer to play for them.

I forgot this top tip. I picked up the cold sax, and proudly launched into Georgia on my Mind, and the performance was full of humiliating squeaks. I felt really, really stupid.

Pride goeth before a fall.
