What's that flugel solo where the player plays down the bell end of a bass called?
We did it when we were doing it Phil. Best the front row ever sounded :wink:Phil Green said:Yep, "Love's old sweet Song" is the most famous one I've come across, however it's often Rep that plays the solo.
The flugal solo "Children of Sanchez" SHOULD start with the cornets playing into or over the bass section bells, with us "twiddling like hell". No band seems to do it though :-(
I think you'll find it was used earlier than that. I remember seeing it on Best of Brass on BBC2 in the early 80's???markyboy said:This particular gimmick was first used by Britannia Building Society Band in their various entertainment conntest successes of the late 1980's so I believe. .
I liked this one.markyboy said:At that time Howard Snell did a lot for new entertaining pieces, another one was 'Duet for two cats' which always went down great when performed well.
Does this have the aforementioned special 'bell end effect' in as well?!?markyboy said:By the way to the person who I lent the video to I would like it back please. I believe you also have my copy of 'Swedish Nympho Nurses'. If your wife finds out you will be in BIG trouble.
Yes it is, we did it at Rainford a few years ago and it was very good where the flugel plays the solo into a bass's bell as they twiddle their valves. It's good if done properly.MoominDave said:Isn't the famous one "Love's Old Sweet Song", arr. Howard Snell?
