Suggestions for solo march tune with "fat" low Gs
 
I'm thinking about competing in EUSPBA grade 5 solos next season. Any recommendations on simpler march tunes that have some nice fat low gs?

Thanks for all of the great suggestions! If I were to choose a march that has 4 parts, say Walter Douglas MBE, would it be inappropriate to play only parts 3 & 4, since I'm only required to play two parts?

I'd do 1st and 2nd or 1st and 3rd (for the Low G :grin:)

Does EUSPBA have a requirement for which parts to play?

WUSPBA, I believe, has a rule stating that if you’re playing only 2 parts of a 4-part tune, you have to play the first two parts.

78ths Farewell to Gibraltar might be alright.

As you decide, here is a good reference for both 2-parted and 4-parted tunes.
