eek! same here!!!
i didn't realise you hd the same interest in band as me!!

usually when i say 'band',people immediately think drums,guitars,keyboards,and vocalists roll eyes (sarcastic) they never realise that's not the only kind there isno

right on rock
although I do play, this trip I'm more of a manager cool

what do you play?
i'm in percussionhappy have been since i was 7happy

Me too yes
But also cello, violin, and very little keyboard big grin

Barf Heaven
eek! I PLAY THE CELLO!!!! Used to play piano too but then I quit... Cuz it sucked... sad

Jeez goin on tour eh? The farthest away my orchestra's ever played at is the NW orchestra festival two hours away... sad Prolly cos we're only a string orchestra not a symphonic orchestra...
I'm trying to figure out how to convince my teacher to let us play LOTR... Cos the band played POTC and it sounded really friggin good only we're like 10x better than the band so if we played LOTR we'd kick ass cool

laughinglaughing out loudHappy Dance woohoo!!!!fellow band members are popping up everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i can't WAIT!!! those 2 soundtracks are the BEST ive ever heard!!!!!!!!!
and POTC has such great percussion parts!!eek! so much drums!!!

Barf Heaven

we don't gots no percussion or winds they's gots a separate band dat's why we hardly ever win the orchestra comp cos lotsa schools's gots fancy-pantsy symphonic orchistras sad sad sad

For me my 2 favorites are LOTR and SW cool rock

your orchestra doesn't have a percussion section??how is that possible??how do you survive???
the percussion section is the HEARTBEAT of the whole band,no matter what type of band it is!!!

laughing out loud i love my sectionhappy

I thought with orchestral music the conductor was technically responsible for keeping the overall timing right.

Barf Heaven
Cuz we're a string orchestra... We have a good bass... He plugs into an amp and turns it all the way up.. Though sometimes we call him "bubble boy" cos our teacher'll say "Ok everybody start at measure 22" or something and he'll say "Where are we starting?"

Anyways... Like I said we're really f***in' good (not to brag or anything wink ) so if it was just string orchestras we had to compete against we'd win every time

Barf Heaven
Well yeah but you can't hear the conductor and you can't constantly be watching him so it's handy to have a percussion section cos you can always hear them and tell how fast to go

and with you in it,i bet it does rock...shifty

Barf Heaven
hell yes rock

Fair point.
But being a self taught git arist (a real musician) and playing everything from memory I dont have that problem! stick out tongue

Well what I really mean is I'm jealous because I cant sight read scores and I'm way too lazy to learn.... sad

but the percussion section (ESP if there's a persn on the drumset) is usually vey guilty of goin too fast - cuz we always wanna go fast for the adrenalinelaughing out loud
