Medium-Advanced Marimba Solo
by Chad Floyd
Instrumentation: Solo marimba (low A)
Blue Sly, a medium-advanced marimba solo by Chad Floyd, that gets its title from the “sly” movement of the left hand which supports the melody in the right. A rhythmic motive is presented at the beginning and is utilized throughout the piece along with a recurring “sly” melody that varies and intensifies as the piece develops. A sneaky sense of groove is conveyed in the writing, and the performance should be “slyfully” fun.
This solo can also be found in The Blue Book - Volume 3 along with over 40 other solos for snare drum, drum set, mallet keyboard, and timpani.
Blue Sly is professionally printed and bound and ships with a full color cover.
