03/20/07 Had a flash of inspiration whilst lying in bed last night and got up early this morning to try it out before work. I want to add some horns to the band, but don’t want them just playing octaves, which is probably the limit of my skill. Then I thought, what if, instead of a bass, that line is played by a Bari Sax?
So, I tried it out this morning and, viola, (that’s vwa-la, not the instrument that’s a little larger than a violin), I like the results. I’ll probably have to find a better bari sample than what came with my sound card, but I’m headed in the right direction.
