As some of you may know, our house took a bit of a hit from a flood a couple months ago.
While I was cleaning up, climbing up & down stairs, hacking out drywall, etc., a couple of little march tunes popped into my head, and I stitched them together into a complete old-time march, and decided to call it "High and Dry."
I used CoMB and GPO for this: The instrumentation is far from standard, but the form is (other than the fact that the main sections are 32 bars instead of 16) So if it sounds "reedy," it IS. There are relatively few brass.
1 GPO FLUTE, 4 CoMB Clarinets, 1 CoMB Cornet (muted in the trio), 4 CoMB Mellophones (ya GOTTA love 'em!), 1 CoMB Euphonium, 1 CoMB Helicon (see "Mellophones" comment above), GPO Snares, Cymbals, Bass Drum, NO TROMBONES!!!
FWIW, all the obbligatos were initially improvised on the euphonium as I played along with the melody tracks then put into the software as notation.
HIGH AND DRY MARCH GO TO POST #3 FOR UPDATE so go to it instead of this )
