This southern rock classic from the group Lynyrd Skynyrd continues to be a favorite. Ralph Ford has expertly adapted this hard-drivin'tune for marching band/pep band performance. Tunes like this with great guitar riffs really translate well to the band idiom. The low brass get the melody the first time before it is passed to the upper brass and woodwinds to finish the chart. Solid and straight-ahead! (1:34).
