The trumpet was actually the first brass wind instrument I got to be familiar with. I however never got to learn it early. Most of the music I heard as a child that had brass sections all sounded like trumpets to me. So whether it was a trombone, a saxophone, a french horn or even a tuba, I just called them trumpets as a kid. They all seemed to have that shrill brassy sound that really sounded beautiful when played together in harmony.

I discovered the saxophone much much later in my teenage. I didn’t even think I would one day play the saxophone because it looked super complex to me.
Playing the saxophone, it sounded to me like a middle ground between all the wind instruments and so I loved it. It became my "trumpet sound".

I explored harmony in this piece to bring out the "shrill" beauty the trumpet could sound like, even though I played the song on a saxophone.
It's a song I have recently been hearing so frequently recently and so I decided to play on it.

Enjoy it!

Lyrics (Musixmatch)

I love You, Lord
For Your mercy never fails me
All my days, I've been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God
And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God
I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In the darkest night
You are close like no other
I've known You as a Father
I've known You as a Friend
And I have lived in the goodness of God (yeah)
And all my life You have been faithful (oh)
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God (yeah)
'Cause Your goodness is running after
It's running after me
Your goodness is running after
It's running after me
With my life laid down
I'm surrendered now
I give You everything
'Cause Your goodness is running after
It's running after me (oh-oh)
'Cause Your goodness is running after
It's running after me
Your goodness is running after
It's running after me
With my life laid down
I'm surrendered now
I give You everything
'Cause Your goodness is running after
It keeps running after me
And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I'm gonna sing of the goodness of God
(I'm gonna sing, I'm gonna sing)
'Cause all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I'm gonna sing of the goodness of God
Oh, I'm gonna sing of the goodness of God

The Saxophone 😍😍😍
First it was you then the two of you and then the three of you 😀😀
Brother your sound was amazing and so harmonic specially the tail end...
The Saxophone and trumpet do almost the same job and their complexity can't be written off... I usually find it much easier to play higher notes on the saxophone than the trumpet, the reed will help me propel higher sounds of magic heheh😀😀
I enjoyed your entry Broo 🙏🎵💙💙🎶😍😍🎺🎺🎷🎷🎷💜🎤

Yeah. I find the trumpet a little bit more complex. The blowing technique needs to be quite solid. The Reed helps with the Sax.
Thanks a lot brother.

The blowing technique needs to be quite solid

The sound of your saxophone (your trumpet) is awesome. You sing on your instrument with a lot of softness and passion at the same time. Congratulations for this beautiful entry

Yeah definitely, a sax is likely close to trumpet, this instruments are all wind instruments..

Nice tone and nice play from you brother..
Weldone

Yes they're all wind instruments. The sax is part of a subset called woodwind instruments.
Thanks so much.
