David Drinkell Posted August 3, 2014 Share Posted August 3, 2014 This was off-topic in the old thread, for which I apologise. As Tony pointed out, the effect of the big chords depends on the particular Tuba and, as also pointed out, it might be better to play them on a chorus of other reeds if the Tuba doesn't sound right. As forumites will probably gather, I was referring to the passage following. It's easier if the Tuba can be brought down to the bottom manual, but the page turn doesn't help, either! I also like the Whitlock Paean (and, very much, the Fanfare), but I have an affection for the Cocker (I think many of my generation played Francis Jackson's recording on "The King of Instruments" LP many times). It's very jolly and goes down well with the punters. I don't think any other Tuba Tune quite matches it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
