my school has a rock band with guitar, drums, bass, sax and a vocalist. Anyone have any ideas as to any good songs we could play? I find its not always easy to find rock songs with sax in it/

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

Write your own material because the saxophone is an amazing instrument?

I think before you learn to play the sax, you should learn to write proper English.

If she's a sax player worth her salt she could easily figure out how to play the melody and improvise a bit.

i have the final solution. kil mr demartino thus getting rid of the head of music. marry the second in charge miss french who has a gaint chest but the mental age of roughly a 13 year old. exert your superouity (sp?) in the relationship and trick your now wife in to do ur/my will of getting the sax player kicked out of the rock band.

It's probably too hard (especially the Sax). They don't have a keyboard. They might butcher it...

So what you're essentially saying with that is that English lit teaches you absolutely nothing? That you're doing English as a subject makes the fact you can't spell for sh*t even worse.

It's just an annoyance having to try and decipher what someone else was originally intending to say.

I get that there might be some contrasting sounds, that's understandable. But what do you mean "No one can be bothered to write a song,"?

If someone's Engilsh needs correcting, it needs correcting. If he is almost the 'dux', then he should be able to spell properly.

Fine I'll type correctly if it's completely necessary, although I thought I was making myself sufficiently clear in what I was trying to say. I can spell 'for sh*t' if i choose to but I generally find typing things out in full tedious. I was perhaps naive in thinking that I could say what I wanted in the manner that I wanted without being hounded for doing so.

Definitely - I've got a sax player in my band and we play all original material. Covers are lame

And if no one can be bothered to write a song then why are you even bothering in the first place - thats the dumbest thing I ever saw

It's much easier to do a cover of Pink FLoyd's Money for example, than to write lyrics, chords, melody etc. from scratch...

Coming from the UK, you should know that some people would find internet slang easier to read than correct english. Using your logic, I should be posting in a multitude of languages to allow people of all nations to read what I'm saying.

+1. Plus, we have to read what you're saying, so the least you could do is type it out properly. Imagine authors started writing like that. <_>
