SWTOR and Sax

One month in and I’m still really digging SWTOR and some of the dialogue is just making it that much better.  I about fell out of my chair when my companion piped up, “Don’t look at me, I don’t know what we’re doing. I just shoot things!”  Too funny!  I’ve got one of each archetype up to level 20 now, and my “main” (Sith Inquisitor/Sorcerer) is level 30.  There was definitely a difficulty jump as I neared 30, but it seems OK now that I’ve crossed that threshold.

In other news, I’m still noodling around on my saxes.  The Tenor has become my preferred instrument.  It’s much easier to play and control than the either the Alto or Melody – which definitely have a tendency to “squeak” if your embouchure isn’t perfect (that’s the way you hold your mouth/lips on the mouthpiece, in case you were wondering).   I’m really looking forward to this weekend (my neighbors are probably dreading it), since I will be getting an old Herb Alpert trumpet book today.  It’s a good thing that trumpet and tenor sax are in the same key.

I’m getting pretty good at playing “Windy” by The Association, and “Hey Jude” by the Beatles, I’ve also started learning “White Room” by Cream and “Eleanor Rigby” another Beatles tune.  It’s been a lot of fun, so I guess that’s it’s a good thing I had this little “crisis.”

I hope all is well in your worlds (real and virtual), Enjoy!
