Of course Tom doesn't even respond to the actual quote. His mental illness focuses him on something other than what I said. The actual quote is:
So, in the video in question, Tom barely manages 20 seconds at a time. Remembering that he had to walk to the underpass and was standing. He also hacked up a lung a couple times.Does anyone even put a dollar in the old dudes case? I had to watch on mute, but it looks like his COPD and lack of ability keeps him from paying more than 20 seconds at a time.
In truth, I don't think the COPD prevents him from playing, I think his lack of ability and the fact that he wants to be seen holding the sax more than heard is the reasoning. Either way, Tom has proven nothing here as he's not a musician and can't play for shit. He only manages to "play" for about 7 mintues while he stops four or five times to talk about why he's incapable of playing anything that even remotely resembles music. Beyond that, he looks like an exceptional idiot trying to pretend that his inability to play is just over the top improv.
Further Tom laments how sad he is that nobody is paying attention to him anymore on AMB and KF, then invites people to come troll him on Discord/YouTube/etc.... probably because he needs the attention to go complain to the cops about.
I thought he was going to be honest for a change when he states that 49 out of 50 people ignore him... but he's using that as an excuse for not getting money and not as an admission that nobody thinks he plays for shit.
At 14, he spergs about this post:
I personally would rather see him reply to this post:
Astoundingly Tom thinks his tone sounds exactly like the embedded video, then proceeds to mock the guy who can actually play music as "not taking chances" and "elementary school stuff". Tom has no self awareness as he cannot even even manage "elementary school" level of music.Okay it is definitely a curved soprano he's on right now. I still want to know the model though, and its hard to tell from his crummy camera quality.
Off the bat his tone is appalling. I can't stress how important embouchure is on a saxophone ESPECIALLY the soprano. Its something you spend a lifetime on, and takes dedication and work to master. Technically I could pick up any saxophone and play it, but I would never say I play soprano. Its something I never got the opportunity to study, or something that I would have the time to take up right now. I spent years playing on Alto and Baritones, and even then I still learn new things about the horns and the development of sound. Tommy needs to go to the drawing board and listen to what the horn should actually sound like. I don't think he's taken the time to listen to other artists outside of himself. Here's 2 minutes of a guy playing a similar horn (definitely a higher quality horn, but nonetheless).
Listen to the tone difference. Tommy wouldn't sound great if he developed his tone (his timing and improv are crap, but one can be fixed with a metronome, the other comes with confidence and time) but he'd at least sound bearable, and someone might throw some cash.
I think this is Tom's sax that he grifted from Amazon using Amazon credit that he'll never pay back.
