    I'm looking for the titles of some pieces that don't really heavily on percussion. Fun, upbeat, attention grabbing stuff. I've drawn a total blank.

    When you say dont rely heavily on percussion, do you mean just some kit? Bit of kit with a bit of tuned but without being to complex? No percussion at all?

    Most "Upbeat" stuff will have a beat included from the kitchen sink dept, but thats not to say you have to include it - it can work but dont expect it to sound the same

    Most of my music at www.pdfbrass.com will work without any percussion. Any "Rythmic" tunes will always benefit from a decent kit player but it is not always essential.
    Feel free to email me if you need any advice on suitability andy@pdfbrass.com
