Castle March or Four Wheel Drive? It's all in Simply Brass
Most of the backings you have seen so far were written specially for Canonbury, but there are quite a few throughout the book written by Alan Pring himself.
• Please go to ❗Alan's website and click the link to your backings:
• For cornet backings click the link called "Simply Brass Acc. B♭ Tracks";
• For tenor horn click "Simply Brass Acc. E♭ Tracks".
• On the new page you can check that it says B♭ or E♭ at the top.
• Now just read down the list of titles till you find your song. There is some fantastic music there – enjoy yourself!
• Remember that the introductions are not all four bars long! Please check – I have probably said how many.
There are now backings online for every page in the Simply Brass book, from 3 to 51. From Acoustic Thing to a whole bunch of Scales and Warmups right at the end – it's all here (or there: for some tunes on pp. 10, 14, and 21 onwards, you can find out how to play Alan's own backings at his website. There's a card on this page, quite close to here, that tells you this too.)
There will soon be more here about the book, its author Alan Pring and what else he has written.
Backings marked B are still in a basic or beginning state and I want to do more work on them.
Other backings could be marked F for finished, or maybe final, or even fancy, meaning that I am not planning to do any more with them (unless I change my mind ...) but it was taking up too much space to mark them. So if it doesn't have a B, it means that I think it's F!
Question: if you are in Year 6 you might know this one: which backing is still just B, but I like it so much that when I make it F I still want to keep the sound and the feel the same? It's the only one that works so well for me.
