a recorder. sort of like a flute.
JarJarJedi: AAAAAAAGGHH!!! <green w/ envy> A Star Wars field show! Did you make any recognizable designs? In my last show, we made a bird, a treble clef (that was my favorite), and a block that came together and then spread out.
yodaboy: actually, a recorder is nothing like a flute. They sound different, they're played differently, they have completely different ranges... heck, they aren't even in the same family: a flute is a woodwind, and a recorder is technically a whistle. Personally, I prefer the recorder, both for its sound and its ease of playing.
I play piano (although I haven't actually practiced in years), alto and soprano recorder (self-taught), and I sing alto. Or tenor or bass when the situation demands it, i.e. whenever the men seem incapable of staying in tune. (Tenor I sing in the same octave as the men, bass I have to go up an octave.)
I would *love* to play some of the more exotic medieval instruments, like the krumhorn CindÃ© mentioned. (Although, given that the sound of the krumhorn tends to make me grin uncontrollably, playing it might be a tad difficult.)
The first time you hear a crumhorn, you simply have to laugh. It's just impossible not to. Gradually, though, you become accustomed to the sound and manage to hear it and even play it without bursting into peals of laughter.
I play in a (very amateur) medieval music group, mostly made up of recorders of all shapes and sizes, but there's two crumhorns -- I play tenor, my sister plays alto. The crumhorns tend to drown out the recorders -- they're not exactly timid instruments.
I play bass guitar and standard guitar (acoustic and electric) and several mutations in-between.
Tried playing the flute once. It didn't work. Wind-intersments ;-) are alien territory; I need stringed things...
Played double-bass for about a year back in high school too, but quit come college due to ugly music-dept. politics. Maybe I'll come back to it someday...
I can only play these on trumpet!!:
Jar Jar's Theme
Duel of the fates
Qui-Gon's Noble end
Angies great munapie band
Driod Invasion,Appence of DM
You Rock man!!
I play trombone and compose. In my junior year (when TPM came out) we read an arangment of SW ANH pretty darn close to the real thing. Pretty tough!
I Play tuba too! Quite good at it if I say so myself.
I also play piano and although my band dosn't play too much star wars we went to Boa (bands of america) and i have seen dci bands to so there.
Well, all but one of the original five is back. I don't particularly like the way the Snowboard smilies look, but they're better than nothing.
I've been playing cello for 8 years.
This is my second year singing, too (if you don't count my leading role in the school production of Amahl and the Night Visitors in 5th grade). My voice has been changing for about 4 years now, so I couldn't tell you if I'm alto, tenor or bass. It changes daily.
I play the violin and the piano and love them both very much, but my dream is to play the cello. I am so jealous Kenobi Maul!
As soon as I graduate and get a real job, that's the first non-essential thing I plan to do: take cello lessons. And I don't care how far I have to drive to find a teacher
But I'm still a huge violin fan and am the proud owner of a beautiful instrument my family got for me as a grad. gift in lieu of a class ring.
IÂ´ve played guitar for 15 years, percussion 9 years, trumpet 8 years and composing 7 years.
SheetmusicLover -- oy; you must be tired!
In a related story: Ludwig von Beethoven has now been *de-composing* for 174 years . . .
Mozart for 210 years!
Barbara Fett: Yeah, a Star Wars field show. I loved it! This year, we just made the usual lines and "pods". We did not do our usual "W" (for Wadsworth) this year. We did do a pass through of the Woodwinds and the Brass. Of course, we did a company front, but this year, we didn't move it. (sux!)
Few more JW music to add to my list:
Batman (duh! Basketball games!)
The Patriot (for this past concert)
Our Star Wars show consisting of:
Duel of the Fates
The Pod Race (A.K.A. The Gungans Retreat)
Binary Sunset (Clarinet Solos!)
The Throne Room/End Credits
Coolguy4522: Our band used to compete in BOA a LONG time ago, like in the early 80s. We now perform in TOB (Tournament of Bands). You saw DCI bands?! I so want to see one!! Phantom Regiment stayed at our school this past summer, and I didn't go to see them pratice! Kicking myself in the butt now. My Freshman year, our band show was The Planets, and it was almost exactly like the Cavaliers '95 show. The last moves for the opener was the same, but that is usually where our band director comes up with the drill moves, from DCI. The music was almost exactly the same too!! Hopeing that I will see some DCI bands this summer.
Woodwinds Kick brASS!!
Bb clarinet for 5 years and counting.
Woodwinds definitely do kick brASS.
Bass guitar and drums.
Trombone For 7 years.
I used to play trumpet, too. (can't believe I forgot to mention that) Didn't like it too much. I guess I can play some piano as well, but by far the instrument I'm best at is bass.
Trombone for 7 years
Trumpet for 6
Baritone Horn for 4
Alto/Tenor/Baritone Sax for 4
I play the violin.
I've been playing piano since the age of 5 and I also play the violin/viola, french horn, cello, and bassoon.
I've played the violin for about 9 years of something, but the only SW-themes I've managed to pick up quite good is Imperial March.
I play the bagpipes, but i can't seem to get any Star Wars tunes any good, but of course, i've barely tried...
