Difficult Marimba Solos

Posted: Sat Jul 12, 2014 11:17 am



Hi everybody. This is my first time to post on here and I just wanted to hear feedback on what solo you guys think are some difficult ones (I'm asking because I'd like to play one of them this year)... I've played Jungle Walk, Frogs, Virginia Tate, Land, Spanish Dance, and Caritas I, and Prism. Thank you for reading :) Also, I'm right now seriously considering Ilijas by Nebojsa Jivkovic.

Though I'm not much of a keyboard player, a few of my friends have played Gitano by Alice Gomez and I think it's a pretty cool solo especially the 2nd movement.

Ilijas is an amazing song! Libertango and the three spirals by Sammut are great as well.

I'm that guy who says he'll try out for drum corps next year and never does.
But I'm totally gonna try to march Alliance this summer.
