Sax in Punk.

Yes, absurd, yet amazing. I've been in that old punk mood, and upon discovering the X-Ray Specs, I was wondering. Would an Alto sound cool among the thrashing punk vintage sounds?? Alot of rock uses tenors, but things like Galactica and Carl Densosn Tiny Universe switch...

    Well, I play sax in a Ska band and I find that tenor has a more fitting sound, but alto works just as well. I don't know much about saxes in punk, because I find it tougher to write parts that fit into heavier music. Its worth a try though, just experiment with both and see which one you like better, because its your decision.

      it is very hard to write parts to punk. and u'll find urself playing the same parts in different keys, b/c thats basically what punk is, when it all boils down. if ur really, really creative, then it could possibly work. have fun, and best of luck Joel
