SMH putting out sound for the 3 of you and not even section leader? How the hell is one of the other kids section leader..BUt yeah man that air thing will have you ON POINT sound wise. Just gotta practice using it properly. It might takes time to get control of the air but when you do you get a much warmer sound and the pedal tones will be crazy strong. They'd have to make up a new word to describe Mr.Beckford as a band director. Its more than just music that we learn in the band room, and thats what sets us apart from most other bands. Hell the old school kids at Miami Central know what i mean. Its just some people dont take what he says to heart and they tend to mess things up sometimes. look at me side tracking. Anyways, i look forward to seeing you at All Star Game
Looks like its time to break out the 6 inches on them corp ass kids. Ol' skating asses. Told you switching to corps was gonna be hard. Its like you have to cut back but still keep up and change some of the key things you learned . Its hard to explain. ROTFLOL @ the tub part. Just dont seem like its worth the effort sometimes huh. But seriously, time to start hazing skillfully teaching the other 2. The way my BD does it is by having us run. They'll start to open up sound wise, because their body is being forced to take in massive amounts of air by breathing properly. So then when they play while gasping they put out this large amount of warm air. That or you could punch them in the gut 8 times before you play. Either way works.
ITS GOOD ROB BUT IN THE MUSIC LIFE PEOPLE THINK LOUDNESS IS EVERYTHING BUT I DON'T THINK SO ITS BOUT THAT TONE MY BAND DIRECTOR IS FROM FAMU SO HE HAS THAT STUCK IN MY HEAD BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT KOLLEGE I WANT TO GO TO. I'M HAVING A HARD CHOICE ITS BETWEEN FAMU,TSU,JSU,AAMU, OR ASU
See now during marching season you gonna have me look yall up on youtube this season. 8 tubas is enough to be beastin on everyone. It's gonna be kinda hard switchin from Corp to Traditional in college again dont you think? But i look forward to getting crabbed by you at FAM. lol
LOL @ the swolled up comment. Our numbers arent definite as of right now for this season but this year our goal is 16 but what we have in the back of our heads is to march 21 strong. We just might eat dade up at the All Star game lol. But whats the numbers looking like for HSH?
Stand tunes, try to start with something easy, a song where you can hear what the instruments would play. Try before i let go by maze and franky beverly. you can get really creative with it. or velvet rope by janet jackson. Cold hearted snake, Toxic, Torture, umm I could probably think of a few more. oh do you want like a famu drill or a drill song?
