Hi, ya'll -
I've worked with GPO for several years, but I certainly wouldn't consider myself a power user. I just got JPP and CMB. Below is the very first piece that I put together. It is based on an arrangement of Dueling Banjos. I call it Dueling Frenzy.
I have all parts "dueling" except for the Drum rhythm line - trumpets vs. trombones, trumpets vs. cornets, French horns vs saxes, flutes vs. clarinets, glockenspiel vs. xylophone, bass brass vs. bass woodwinds.
The accelerated and delayed entries are purposeful - to give some 'tension' to the piece. You will notice that the tempo steadily increases during the first half of the piece. I think it is a "fun" work.
This was made from a 14 track MIDI. I also tried a 34 track version adding more and more trumpets and trombones in each phrase (starting with one each). It didn't translate as well as I thought it would, so I am going with the smaller version, here.
I would certainly appreciate anyone's comments and suggestions.
