    Memorised this when I was a kid, and it stuck.

    Prefer it played in F (4th lower than this recording) on a Bb instrument. Great on bass trumpet (and the keyboard accompaniment is superfluous.)

    I don't know that one but I do know one with many of the same notes.........

    That always shuts them up.

    As a horn player primarily, I tend to pull out Jupiter by Holst, Overture to candid by Burnstien, or Hounds of Spring by reed and play certain parts, like the solos and solis

    I might decide to play solo ... so low no one can hear it.

    This is one long thread, and I am so bored now, I must say. It started in 2004. It is now nearly the end of 2013. Are we in a time warp?

    Either that or: "Every Breath You Take" Seriously, I cannot believe in the 70's how many brides wanted us to play this song at their wedding.
