Okay. Moving, moving right along now with the deviation, as promised, from last night's program . . . What? . . . Unfortunately, if I come up here I can't hear the drums, see? So— Now, here, this is what I look like, and with the guitar is like this. So, we're going to do another piece now that the band has never played because it's not written down, for one thing, but it's so simple minded that with a few cheap explanations we should be able to do it. Now . . .
Members Of The Audience':
No, no, not that . . .
Members Of The Audience:
Boy, do we have a surprise for you.
Alright. Hey, gang! The changes for this song are C# minor for 2 bars, D major 7 for 2 bars, and that's it. And it's in 3/4, and we'll voice it out . . . uh . . . let's see . . . Oh, you guys just pick any voicing, it's like a . . . Let's put a suspension on top with a C, uh, you can have a C#, and a B and an F#, they'll stay over both chords. Only low register instruments can play the note D when it changes to the D major 7, and the low brass should be voiced out with bass trombone and tuba with a D on the bottom, and then both of you guys play E, a 9th over that. French horns the A in the middle. Okay?
And then the trumpets uh . . . C— C#, F# and B, and when it goes to the, the C# minor chord, you guys are still on the same notes and you guys move . . . ah-ah-ah . . . D goes down to a C#, the A goes to a G# and the E stays where it is. Okay?
Alright. So can we hear that just a little bit, you know? Just it's about— One, two, three, one, two, three . . .
Okay, right, that, that was just a demo. Okay. Similar voicing over here. I'd like to have uh, both of you guys on baritone playing those, the root, boring root progression, and uh, you stay on the alto. You stay on the sarrusophone, play the boring bottom end of it while everybody else grabbing you the notes in between. Three piccolos . . .
Oh, you will in a minute. Basically what's gonna happen is I want to play more guitar in the concert and the easiest way I could do it is just have a vamp like this. So, here's, here's our little jam session for ya.
And the, the conductor goes like this . . .
