Well, you could always share those little ideas and maybe other people may be able to add onto them. I've done the same thing sometimes except I usually don't write them out for some reason.

Today I tuned the side head of my snare drum to a high C# and it sounded great, I was looking
for a high D but couldn't get it so I tuned it in C#.

How do you usually tune a marching snare drum? (Pearl Carbonply Snare Drum 14'' btw)

My personal marching snare, a 1980s Ludwig Challenger, has the batterhead tuned at a low Ab, and the snare head is tuned to the Db above it.

Not exact pitches, but pretty close.

I've got an original snare solo. It's about medium difficulty and it's great for an audition piece. Anyone want it?
