    This is a very unique piece. No. 4, "'THE GUM-SUCKERS' MARCH" is particularly fun to play and hear. All four sections require very unusual and rather difficult teqniques of playing, including 1 note to be struck with the right fist as well as 3 to be played by striking...

    the stings with a marimba mallet. This book has all of the composer's original notations (as far as I know), which are very helpful. This music would otherwise be almost unlearnable.
