It was in Llanelli that I was busking with a sax player one Christmas. Tbut my mate almost froze to his instrument. ::)
Morning Rees...if it'sthe sax player I'm thinking of, some of us might wish he had :)

When the Ironmen danced in the Basque Country a few of the band tried busking (Please add your own "Basquing" pun here........)

We ended up with less in the hat than we started with.  Now that takes skill...

Rees,
As a tenor sax player and one you invited to blow a few choruses at the Boris nee Ken Thames Festival, it is my duty to copy this post to all the sax boards I know as part of my sworn duty as a member of The Saxophones Federation.
On the other hand, silence could be bought, maybe a MkVl Selmer. :-X :-X

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

Come on Bill, you can't be serious. Everyone knows you can't tune a kazoo. To change the key all you need to do is put a capo around your neck. ;D

My Sheffield City Council 'Authorised Busking Permit' came in the post today. Hooray! So I'm now an official, legit, licensed Street Entertainer !

Far from me to correct an Old Pro but capo-ing another part of the body might result in a greater key change range.
