    aka 'Pop Looks Bach'.

    I was wondering what other bands do in this piece about the 1st Cornet part. Do people generally try and slur it or do any bands tounge instead? It's so much easier tounged, but I was wondering if it stops it from sounding how it should.

    I've yet to hear a band from any section play this properly. Its an absolute pig!! We bought it ages ago, but gave up after a couple of rehearsals as we decided we would never play it at the right speed or make it sound how it should (we were thrid section at the time). Its never been out since.

    The best compromise seems to be for one cornet to anchor the first of each group of two and the rest attempt to play as written. I've heard several bands do it this way in the past and while it was still some way from being right, at least it resembled something near the TV theme. :-?
