    Hi Gary. I couldn't open the link again. I think you should post them like this: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/defa...nginfo&songID=10098689
    where only the value behind songID changes. You can copy this kind of link from your own artist page.

    On to the serious matter: I liked the arrangement. At some points, I thought I was listening to Sousa! For the "mock up", the top voice(s) could have been just a bit louder, which would probably happen in a live situation, but I guess you don't want to make any changes to your score just for rendering. But it's a good choice for such an arrangement. A band could really pump out some energy in this tune. Good job.

    Two familiar yet wonderfully distracting pieces! Good job on the parts and so on, but I only wish that you would add percussion. Just the usual suspects, but I think it would be expected when doing these live, given the rest of the instrumentation and arrangement.

    Enjoyable listen!

    Best regards,

    Thanks for listening, Theo.
    I sometimes find Finale playback acting in an unchangeable manner. I hear the lack of volume in the trumpet part near the end, but increasing the volume doesn't change anything. It's like a computer Drone repels my efforts.

    Thanks for listening, sd.
    I have Finale 2010 which is supposed to make percussion entry easy & I have
    the percussion add on. On various files, I don't get the correct sounds. This was one such file. Instead of snare & Bass drum I get "dumb" tom & whistle....
    Speaking of Sousa, Joplin's Rags were based on his march forms & styles, but with much more syncopation.

    Hello Gary

    Same problem for me, the link doesn't work using Internet Explorer 8 on a Windows 7 machine. Real pity, I was very much looking forward to hearing your arrangement of the Maple Leaf.

    Try either link from my post (if you use the second one, you get a list of all Gary's works; the rag is on top until he publishes a new work).
