trombone parts...all online..
Ok, I was wondering about tuba - I’ll look at trombone
What would Quinn Sullivanm play? He opened with his band backing a 17 year old (300lb) guitar player/singer that went by "King Fish" - Mozart talented. But in general BG's show was way beyond "blues" - more about the highest level of professional music presentation by a seasoned entertainer.
Quinn is a young white guitar player Buddy took under his wing. Plays a mean Little Wing, among other things.
And yeah, Buddy is a heck of a showman.
tuba's cool and you don't have to transpose but with those piston valves it doesn't lend itself to the legatos the way a sliding valve horn does IMO...
It sucks when the kick is overwhelming like that. Too much bass turns to mud, but that is even worse.
You are correct. And I was being a wiseass, shockingly enough. When being serious, I agree with you completely.
I want a sousaphone one of these days. No good reason except playing and dancing to make that big bell bob around.
Here's the number system explained in a series of YouTube clips. Very easy to follow...
Who says TBirds are neck heavy! That thing is so light it and you are starting to float away!
All great pics! I really enjoy all these playing out postings, almost makes me want to get back into the gig scene. Party hard!
Lol, text is tough for nuance!
(I should know better than to wax all serious around here...)
Iroquois Middle School, Irondequoit NY, I was in 7th grade when this was taken. I still have the bass! A 1960's Klira.
they sound pretty awesome..
Also acid washed jeans! Too cool!
I love that bass! I also love the position of the neck pup.
Because I play in a community concert band, I sometimes hafta read tuba parts. They're written where they sound whereas string bass parts are written an octave higher than they sound(I have no idea why)*. I'm OK down to (written) Bb-2 ledger lines and a space below the staff-after that I gotta write in the name of the note. EDIT And, of course, 'think' it up an octave!
* our middle space C would be a tuba's 2 ledger lines below the staff C.
Me too, also!
IF I was gonna have TBird II custom built, I'd want the pup(singular)a little closer to the neck heel. But that ain't gonna be hap'nin'.(mufunzalo)
