XJAM: Shirushi (Test)
Q: What happens when you don't touch a saxophone for 3 weeks?
A: Your fingers get stiff, your embouchure gets slack, you start squeaking, and you can't play in tune...
...I want to punch myself...
Anyway, let me give some context.
I have a gig coming up and I decided to play the song Shirushi for it(yes, I know. SAO song again. Lay off me. I haven't had the chance to look up other songs cause I'm busy.).
Instead of playing it as a rock ballad, I chose to perform it in a jazz/funk/ballad fusion style.
Honestly, this is more of a 'proof of concept' if anything...(thus, 'test')
Why do I say this? Cause it's shoddy...very shoddy...
I'll probably post it again once I've finalized it...
