This month I've been learning a new instrument. I can already play guitar and piano so I decided to learn something new with the Bamboo Saxophone and cover the jazz piece Take Five by the Dave Brubeck Quartet. I set the bar at learning the first minute of the song and it took me 7 hours and 38 minutes to record a decent take.
