    I am enjoying working on some of the music. Gottschalk calls for a different toolbox of techniques than most of the music I've played. One problem: the book is thick enough and is bound in such a way that it's very hard to get it to stay open...

    to the page you're playing.

  • January 15, 2005 Wonderful composer~!

    I heard "Le Banjo: Fantasie Grotesque" and I was out to find the music! It is a very fun song and really fun to play. It wasn't that difficult and didn't take me that long to learn it and memorize. Gottschalk is one of the best American composers...
