ChirpyBeak • Mar 11, 2019 Hi! I've looked through Musescore and found that there are only a few 4 octave solo pieces for the marimba. Could anyone recommend some to me? Thanks a lot!!! Comments [user=29978607]crazyice1[/user] Hi! i recommend you to study "5 pieces pour marimba solo" by Sejournee. It's a great book for studying tecnique and dynamics; it's pretty much all you need to start with you own solos [user=28379324]ChirpyBeak[/user] [user=crazyice1]crazyice1[/user] Thanks for the suggestion! I have one more question - for the first piece (Balafon) in this series "5 pieces pour marimba solo", which part of the bar/mallet do I use to play for the first few lines? The score marked an "x" for the note head. Thanks in advance!
