  1. Favorite music book of the year right now for me.. Glad I saw the video - if I can't get on the 50 for Allentown I'll want to make sure I'm to the right of the 50 (looking at the field from stands), they concentrate on that side of the field a lot more.
  2. Facebook specific, but the same idea..
  3. Cinemark 12 in Hazlet, NJ. Reserved comfortable recliners :-) Going with my daughter.
  4. Wouldn't mind a PM with any links :-)
  5. Just to clarify - I just found the video, I don't know who did the running commentary in it. He also got one thing wrong - he mentioned the "9/8" section, but it was alternating 2/4 and 5/8 (9/8 would be easy with no "halt" in the step like the 5/8).. you can see here at "31"
  6. Speaking of stuff hitting the cutting room floor, here's some early season Garfield 87 rehearsal
  7. Currently playing 3 movements of the LoTR Symphony #1. Holy double-tonguing-from-hell for all the trumpets (4 trumpet parts in this one) in Gollum. His stuff is certainly interesting.
  8. I loved the Adams trumpets I've played, I didn't know they did marching instruments, that's awesome!
  9. It doesn't answer your question, but this thread brings back memories - I wrote computer drill writing software for a college project back in 1990! For the time, it was pretty good (dont know if there were any others back then). I used my 87 garfield drill sheets as the show for my project, lol. Wish I would have continued with it and tried to sell it back then! Oh well.
  10. It's actually a lot easier to do than most people think. I don't see a need for it in a DCI hornline since you can just stagger breathe on any really long notes.
