_______________________

Great for pre/post-game or half-time at Basketball games, this classic rock tune is known by all. The wind parts are incredibly easy, but the Electric Bass part (a standard in the repertoire!) is a bit more difficult.

Included are two different parts for Alto Sax (to double Trumpets or Trombones) and Bari Sax (to double Trombone or Electric Bass).

The highly-flexible "BcP-Flex" scoring* imitates the classic rock band sound by using only 4 "instruments/voices" - lead, rhythm, bass, and drums:

Lead: Flute, Clarinets, Alto Sax (flex-option), Trumpets

Rhythm: Alto Sax (flex-option), Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Horn, Trombone, TC Baritone

Bass: Electric Bass, Bari Sax (flex-option)

Drums: No drum set part is written as it is often easier to get the drummer to "pick-up" the tune by listening to the chart.

Parts are formatted to fit in a flip-folder, but print on letter-sized paper if you prefer to use 3-ring binders.

Easy keys with multiple courtesy accidentals and well-marked rehearsal numbers reduce the amount of time needed in rehearsal and improve performance.

Note: If you don't use Electric Bass and that part is not playable by your tubas, send me an email and I will transpose the part and pdf it to you (find contact info at www.bandroom.com). For the  few bucks royalty ($3.60!) I end up with if you buy this, I wanted to wait to see if someone purchases it before investing more time. Thanks for understanding.
