Think I’ll just enjoy the coffee !! Pages of the stuff , patent numbers; oddly a place called ” werkit “…?? With Sam Butera clips, attributed to myself. Take a look at an early 60s Elkhart 10M. A Grassi 🙁 low Bb ) bari….another tenorsax. A pile of mpcs, and a worse pile of studies. One untidy music room…lol !!
Probably for the best I didn’t make much progress. I’m not the best role model !!😉
Usual safe happy and funky day all !!
LOL , a Smoe is an old 40s american slang for regular guy, Joe Smoe (also spelled Joe Schmoe and Joe Schmo and “Yo Hschmo”), meaning ‘Joe Anybody’, or no one in particular, is one of the most commonly used fictional names in American English slang Adding a “Shm” to the beginning of a word is meant to diminish, negate, or dismiss an argument (for instance, “Rain, shmain, we’ve got a game to play”). This process was adapted in English from the use of the “schm” prefix in Yiddish to dismiss something; as in, “Fancy, schmancy.” 40s slang
LOL Brother Cavefish !! Thats kinda coming back to me now….yup…I’m just a Joe Schmoe saxman !!
Dinky little horn Jeff…somebody once bought me one that size with a clockface set in the bell. Absolutely useless….LOL !!
Jeff, your one liners are great. I remember the ” hi jak ” plane comment well…☺ !! Yeah, nice gift, useless clock…so small !!
Over the years, I’ve been gifted various shirts, mugs, the sax clock. I did have an old zippo. It had a tenorsax engraved on it. Not the best job, but pretty funky. Don’t know what happened to any of this stuff …😇 !!
Today, I tidied my ” music room “. The drum kit is sold thankfully. Yours truly has been asked to look after it until the studio extension is done. I only mention as I tidied a stack of sheets, dots, books, and went to buy a decent music stand. Pretty much like Johnny’s. The store was shut …ho him. Let’s see if anybody has loaded any new tunes.
I am considering a laptop. I need to fnd a way of getting these backing tracks off of the pad , and I guess onto an I pod \ Bluetooth \ amp setup. That’s were the next cash is going…
