Ludwig Drum Co. Contest Solos
This is our last blog post of 2016 and we'd like to leave you all with a few things to practice over your holiday break. So dust off your drum pad and get to work! (perhaps this might be a chance to work off some of that turkey and extra piece of pie hmmmm?)
I'd like to thank Greg Way for giving me these sheets (and several large boxes of percussion literature!) back in the mid-90s before he left Regina, Saskatchewan for Ontario. If I had to guess I'd say this was some sort of educational promo material that the Ludwig Drum Company printed and distributed back in the 60s (?) Anyways, there are some real gems here that are just as relevant now as they were back then.
Here's a clip of the great Frank Arsenault performing the very same version of "The Downfall of Paris":
And J. Burns Moore playing the "Connecticut Halftime":
Here's "Hell on the Wabash" as performed in period uniform:
And the Hellcats lay it down on the "Three Camps" (this is a chops buster...):
Thank you all for your continued support.
See you in 2017!
