I remember the first time I played Alto Saxophone for an extended period of time

I had to learn it if I wanted to join Jazz Band because Clarinet isn’t a jazz instrument (that is what he said that is what my band director said) and I went to the first practice. I’m chilling, enjoying playing this new instrument and trying to get my tone not to sound like shit, and after about 20 minutes, my right thumb starts to hurt. After 35 minutes, my thumb goes completely numb. I can’t even fucking feel it anymore and I’m starting to panic because I’m wearing a neck strap so why is my thumb hurting and going numb. After the full 75 minutes, my thumb is still without feeling and stayed that was for the rest of the night. I shit you not.
