Conan the Barbarian - Recovery
Stan Bush - On my own alone
Jerry Goldsmith / Rambo - It’s a long road
Or any songs of basil poledouris.
If any can help out that would be great !
A lot of cool sax players out there, but what is your favorite one and why? What is the particular thing that makes it special for you? what distinguishes him from others?
So after listening to Bach's Cello Suites and his Flute Partita, I figured I would do a similar thing but for bassoon. The fact that I am writing for bassoon is partly why I decided to start with an overture instead of a prelude(French overture if you want to get into the specific type based on speed pattern). That isn't to say that the slow section won't include some fast 16ths but I have been adding long notes as I see fit.
I only have 13 measures so far, so I'm not thinking of uploading the piece yet. But I can only use the singing method for the alto range and low soprano pretty much(my natural soprano has gotten limited and squeaky over the years, and not because I overused my soprano so unlike before where I could easily sing up to a high G in my soprano, I can barely get a high C out) which means that as soon as the notes are in the range of a bass voice or a low tenor, I can't use the singing method to check for slur placement at all and in the soprano range, it isn't going to be all that accurate(Not that I would have the bassoon going into a soprano range all that often anyway).
And I myself do not play bassoon, partly because the instrument, even at beginner quality is like $3000 worth. Whereas my beginner quality flute, I got for less than $100. That is quite the price difference between the cheapest and most expensive woodwind at beginner quality, excluding auxiliaries.
If I did play bassoon at an advanced level, I could just write down the notes that I want without worrying about slurs, play the notes as written, and see where I run out of breath and how I naturally phrase it. The breath and phrasing together would determine where to put the slurs. But because I don't play bassoon, and I don't have a friend who I know is a bassoonist, this method won't work either.
So if my vocal range is limited pretty much to alto and low soprano making the singing method not viable for bassoon and I don't play bassoon, nor know a friend who plays bassoon, how am I supposed to determine where to put the slurs in my Bassoon Suite?
I am composing a marching band show just for fun and need help with the percussion parts. I am struggling. I am a baritone player so i have no idea how to write for percussion/ drumline.
Note: The weird 32nd notes on the rail arent supposed to be played that way its written like that to sound like a susspended cymbal roll. Thanks
Here is the link:
This is still a work in progress. Please leave critiques/ and suggestions for percussion.
Hello I am writing a show for my self. I Arranged some pre-show music and a lead off into part two. Please leave comments and suggestions. I might continue with this or not... Just depends on the feedback thanks.
I had a perfectly good MuseScore 3 working program, after upgrading to the latest version 3.0.5. There was a link to download MuseScore Drumline, which I clicked and installed the extension. Now I can't get MuseScore to load at all!
I've re-downloaded it but Windows 10 refuses to open it. All I get is increased CPU and Memory usage and eventually I have to close the unopened app.
So, I'm not really sure what category of band this belongs in, because it kinda combines elements from pep, jazz, and marching band, but if anyone wants to listen to and and maybe give some feedback, that'd be pretty cool.
I have searched everywhere in musescore, but I can only find giant steps and Mr. PC, but the solo isn't in pieces. Does anyone know books or other media to use?
It can be pop, country, rock, hip hop, rap, ect. Just comment it below I will see if anyone has the same as mine!
Please list your favorite saxophone.
Is there a way for me to write snare splits without having to add another snare part in completely
