Hello and welcome.
About me: Bienaimé Lud, born in 1948.
Analyst Programmer retired, I divide my time between music and entertainment computing.
Regarding music, I am a "young" amateurish saxophonist, because I learned music theory and instrument at the age of 53 years.
My instrument, a stunning baritone saxophone Selmer Series II, I troll with three replicates in concert musical societies in my region, two very cool bands and a harmony that has access to excellent level, which I am very proud .
Computer side, I left my work as an analyst programmer, but not my passion for this discipline indispensable today.
The creation of websites for associations, I am free of course, occupies much of my time.
Foamed, I surf the internet wave, up and down, always looking for news on the "Music in Harmony".
Hence the idea of creating a special website dedicated to playing an instrument in an amateurish group, it's called band, big band, band, brass band, Banda and others.
Finally, the use of Harmony Assistant software for editing and music composition, brings my two passions.
You understand now why the retirees never have time!
The forum (internet)

A guest book is a book (or web page, or any other written media) where people enroll comments / praise / criticism about something (eg a place, an event ...).
For example, in a restaurant or a guesthouse, a book can be written by clients to demonstrate their passage.
The writings of a book can be :
- "I love because (...)"

- "Ashamed (...)".
Its main purpose is to hear the opinion of site visitors, and the owner of the book may well improve its product based on the written comments.
Harmony is the deliberate use of frequencies simultaneously, with a view to provide relief and depth to the song or instrumental performance : she represents the aspect vertical music, while the melody is the aspect horizontal.
