VD Spree, Critique Needed

Posted: Sun Jan 11, 2015 6:23 pm



This is an exercise Vandy's drumline hasn't played despite having it for two seasons, and I'm wanting to bring it in this season so I'm starting to work it up now. I've only memorized it today, and I'm looking for absolutely any critique you have to offer, no matter how harsh, just let me have it; do forgive the bad quality of my webcam, I don't have a better way to take a video right now. Here's the sheet music: http://vanderbilt.edu/vuband/Percussion ... 0Snare.pdf

Thanks to everyone in advance!



EDIT: Looks like I added a bar of flam accents between bars 8 and 9, there's the first fix!

You look like Benedict Cumberbatch, and you stared into my soul the whole time o.O There was a tick or two, but I'd get the heights perfect and push the tempo a bit before I tried to push it with the instructors.

That's my plan. I want to take this at a minimum of around 120 bpm, but the inverted flam taps and inverted cheese taps are holding me back.
Also you're not the first to tell me I look like Benedict Cumberbatch, haha thanks for that!

Also, I'm so sorry you go to such an awful school. #GoVOLS I played through it and the hardest part to me were the swiss drags off the left. 'Twas pretty rough.

Yeah, the swiss drags are definitely interesting.

Ouch. Thanks for that. Although Vandy does have its problems... anyway it's awesome that UT won their bowl game this year!

Philip,

I was the assistant band director at the private school across from Vandy on 21st Avenue for the
past three years.(Univ.School) I wanted to get over to see you guys play while I was there but never
found the time. Small world.

Let us know how the spree goes with the line in the fall.

Haha had to take a friendly jab. They're on the rise, for sure!
