by Danny Raymond
Instrumentation: Concert snare drum (played with collapsable wire brushes)
Clean Sweep is a one-of-a-kind snare drum solo by Danny Raymond that is played entirely with wire brushes. Easily one of the toughest solos we offer, the piece is as cool as it is difficult. Not only will does it call for fast hands, but there are plenty of stick, or rather, brush tricks to boot. Luckily, there’s a cool-down section in the middle where the performer will have a chance to catch his/her breath before the climactic ending.
This piece comes as a bound folio containing the sheet music, performance notes, a notation key, and even warm-up exercises specific to the piece!
This solo was extracted from Danny’s 9-solo compilation DVD “Let It Rip.” The DVD contains not only printable PDFs of the sheet music and performance videos of each, but also tips & tricks, warm-up exercises, interviews, and more.
