Wow, just come back from band, playing Le Carnival Romain. Really enjoyed it, I couldn`t believe how much music is inside the whole piece and anyone who just turns up thinking it`s going to be easy will have a shock. Now I have played this many times, but never really played it if you know what I mean. As a BBb bass player I have loads of work to do, Stamina, tight playing and dynamic changes, just to start with. I am looking foward to the challenge and hope everyone agrees this is a tough piece, the first section is really tight this year and most bands will put in a class performance. Looking foward to hearing the other sections, really good pieces, good venue and i`m glad to be back banding, I just want rehearsal every night now....Someone doesn`t have a life!!!.
