    Vuvuzela concerto

    Does anyone know when Garritan will release samples of the Vuvuzela? I am writing a concerto for Vuvuzela and orchestra and need high quality samples. I hope Gary samples all colors of the horn as I believe there to be subtle differences in timbre.

    Inspired by Bach's "Air in D major", I have chosen to title my work "Gas in D lieutenant".

    Happy Father's Day!

    The peak is the bass line.

    While it is a brilliant theme, and well developed, I can't understand why there are no dynamic or articulation markings. You have to romance the music from such an instrument, and the more direction you give the performer, the more successful this piece will be. You have to make it SING!

    I was able to sight read it after only two hours of practice.

    My dog bit me and my neighbor took a shot at me at two o'clock this morning as I was performing this piece. Why is there no more appreciation for alternative genres?

    Oh man! Thanks a lot, guys. Now I can't get that tune out of my head.

    If you enjoy the instrument as much as I do, you'll be pleased to know there's a whole radio station devoted to it. Warning, it's addictive!
