Wordless/ful Wednesday


What musical instrument am I?







Answer to last Wordless/ful Wednesday: Soprano Saxophone

The soprano saxophone was invented in 1840 and is the second largest instrument in the saxophone family. The soprano saxophone is a woodwind instrument and is played in jazz and classical music. Because the soprano has a small body, it is hard to keep in tune so experienced players will use alternate fingerings to keep the notes in tune. The soprano saxophone is also made with a curved bell like an alto saxophone.





Below is an example of what a soprano saxophone sounds like:

I know that is one trombone. Where are the other 75?!?!?

Well, it looks like a trombone, but I know it either isn't a trombone or it is not the typical one I am used to seeing.

What a creative blog you have!

I love that I can learn something here. I can identify drums, pianos and guitarts. After that I am lost.

I thought I was pretty musically savvy, having been trained to play several musical instruments and having sung professionally--but this weekly post stumps me more often than not! I'm thinking trombone but not any one I'm familiar with...

Blessings!
