Musical Saw

I decided while watching the Portland band, Musee Mechanique play a few weeks ago, I wanted to play the musical saw. I don't know anyone that plays it in Boise AND I don't have to memorize chords and hand positions, etc. I use my ear to determine what will sound amazing with what is being played and what is coming from the saw.

it doesn't cost all that much either....

  1. Can you be in NYC on July 18th?
    If so, come to the 7th annual NYC Musical Saw Festival. So far 45 musical saw players registered to perform. 2 are coming from Japan, 3 from Germany, 3 from Canada, 1 from Belgium and the rest from all over the USA.
    It will be wild!
    There's a concert, art exhibit and a workshop, all centered around the musical saw.
    Hope to see you there!

    When: Saturday, July 18th, 2pm
    Where: Trinity Church, 31-18 37th Street (37th street at 31st Ave), Astoria
    Admission: $10
