The Rifleman

$5.00

This is a difficult grade 6 snare drum solo. Anyone performing this technically demanding solo will need the musicianship of a virtuoso marksman, just as Daniel Morgan's riflemen needed to be sharpshooters. Written in honor of two other Virginians and patriots, - Senators John Warner and Robert Byrd. This solo includes historical and biographical information about Daniel Morgan, Senator John Warner and Senator Robert Byrd.

This solo contains simple and complex poly-rhythms and meters, and a full range of demanding dynamics and tempos. A solid understanding of abbreviated notation is required by the performer for correct interpretation. This solo will surely reduce a "Tornado" into a gale force wind when played accurately. THE RIFLEMAN will definitely impress any judges at competition or college/university audition. This solo is also included in the snare drum book "Rhythmic Designs" by Steve Kastuck.
