Look up the word "Gizmo," and you will find references to its origin in the slang used by United States Marines and Navy personnel when referring to a "gadget" of unknown origin or design. Ralph Ford’s inventive work for your first-year players uses a ratchet in the percussion section to musically depict a gizmo. Great fun! This title is available through SmartMusic.
