Trombone Parts

September 24th, 2014
trombone, contra, trumpet, transcript, music

I want to get better at playing horn parts at contra dances, but I'm not very good at figuring out what to play yet. A couple weeks ago the Free Raisins played the Montpelier dance with Nils calling. He's also a great contra dance trombone player, playing with Elixir, and he sat in with us for a few sets. People loved his playing, as usual, so I decided to listen back to it and transcribe the main ideas.

On The Danforth, key of A major. (without trombone)

Road to Erogie, key of A major. (without trombone) Speed the Plow, key of A major. (without trombone) I feel like transcribing these and playing these over has been helpful, but it's hard to summarize what I've learned. Maybe "use the major third (C#) a lot"? Mostly just priming my fingers with these sorts of parts.
