    Pleasant walk

    A piece for young concert bands. Probably an easy grade Two.

    I just don't understand the snare line. I placed the "Mixer" at zero, and put a dynamic level of pppp, and it's still a little loud.
    (Finale '09)

    A really nice piece. I can't understand why the snare is
    not joining the "club" here. Gee, it sounds like a machine
    gun.

    I have had some problems with dynamic levels on specific
    instruments and after trying to fully analyze the problem,
    finally decided to send a copy of the file to Finale support.
    A lot of times, I receive a message from them that it plays
    fine on their computers.............go figure.........lol

    Even with the snare acting up, I like the piece. It could be
    a lot of fun for a young band.

    Thanks for listening, Jack.
    Many times I've just received "attitude" when I send in a question,
    so I don't waste my time with Finale help.

    Thanks for listening, David.
    An occasional return to "simple" is the
    pause that refreshes.

    It may sound simple to us but for the young musician this will be a welcomed new addition for their music choices.

    A sequencer could humanize the drum but a human drummer will know what to do anyway.

    Thanks for listening, Phil.
    Unless I have a solution suggested that I can follow, I choose to accept the changes I am able to do, and live with the rest.

    Well, that tune's stuck in my head now, so that must be a good sign!

    I would have enjoyed playing this in my early days on euphonium. Thanks for sharing this.

    Do you play bass clef or treble?

    Do you play bass clef or treble?
    Treble (pre-transposed to Bb). Although I had a spell of playing tuba and had to read bass clef. The reading's fine, the transposition wasn't!
