    Hello young man!
    What a shame no-one has replied yet! What kinda thing do you like, and what standard are you?
    'Share My Yoke' is a real teal jerker when young'uns play it - but only if you have a nice round sound, mind.
    'Sugar Blues' is a cracker too.
    Listen to some CDs - McCann, Webster, Morrison and the likes all play a variety of solos. Pick one you like, there's nothing worse than having to play one you don't like, and practice like mad! :D

    damn somebody suggested concorde before me. anyway it's very nice to play. so good. though if i may reccomend something. play it on a trumpet it sounds so much nicer without the excess vibrato of playing a cornet. plus then you can play the jazz section properly.

    Philip Sparkes Manhattan is great to play. Or if you like something a bit different try a cornet solo by Eddy Debbons (they are difficult, but great to practise and listen to).
  8. Here are two stunning cornet solos that Kirsty Abbotts recorded for her solo CD "Soliloquy"...

    A New Dimension
    By Joy Webb

    Arranged especially for Kirsty Abbotts’ solo CD by Stephen Hague, this gem of a piece comes from the salvation army composer Joy Webb (composer of the well known cornet solo “Share My Yoke”). A New Dimension incorporates the same simplicity, lush harmonies and a gorgeous tune as was done in “Share My Yoke”. A perfect addition to any bands library and soloists repertoire.

    Home Away From Home
    By Phil Coulter

    This gorgeous melody has been made famous by the virtuoso flautist James Galway, popularised on Classic FM and now arranged for brass band with a solo cornet taking the starring role. A perfect concert item, such a simple melody, but heart warming and playable by most bands.


    Sale Price: £17.95

    I know it's very late notice.. But maybe you should try a Duet? or even a Sop Solo.
    High Fidelity is a good one. And deliverance.
