    Anybody played this march, we had a run through it last night. I thought it was a good march but how difficult is it :shock: :!:

    I love this march, and can never understand why nobody ever seems to play it! Not convinced its the hardest, but its certainly one of the most interesting to play (for the middle of the band anyways)

    Yea I've played this.
    The Euph part is very busy but The Wizard runs it close for "hardness" :lol:

    I wonder how difficult the winner of the Mouythpiece march competition is going to be?

    (Unless I win, in which case I know!)

    Surely you know how hard it is if you had a run through it. :?:

    I like it but from the one time I played it years ago.

    Anyone played the 'Coloured Patrol'? March

    Got it out for a laugh on tues. Bass solo is hilarious more like a 1920's Golliwog cake walk. Genious but had to stop the band for laughing. Could be one for durham day. Ha ha

    A certian Mr Wrimmer was conductor of Tullis Russell Mills Band for many years and we have many old, almost obscure, marches of his in the library. If anyone has a real old favourite I don't mind looking it out for you if we have it, if you would like to borrow it.

    Played areal old one last year at Carnegie (old age, can't remember the name) - the band didn't really like it but the adjudicator did and that's what counts. :wink:

    What is this, the Viva Rimmer march? Rimmer is the composer no? SO is it like the arrangement of many for his marches or celebration of his work?

    Is interesting to learn more of the English marches. We hear the popular ones much but never like this.

    As for a busy euph part, hell yeah! Mind is also dodgy when half the part isn't legable, well thats my excuse anyway :p
