Default Grade two strathspay drum score

Can anyone give me advice for a good strathspey drum score that would fit in a grade 2 solo or maybe a little higher or where I can find one. My solo teacher says I need to start picking out my own music which is cool but I don't know where to start Any help would help alot.

Justin,

I would try something like Cabar Feidh or Susan MacLeod. Both excellent Strathspey tunes.

Susan MacLeod you can pretty much find anywhere. Cabar Feidh (an excellent written score) can be found in Something Old and Something New by Tom and Gordon Brown.

Good Luck!

Cheers,

I would start by listening to grade 2 & grade 3 bands, and when you hear something you like, ask the members/lead tip of those corps. Most people are really very cool about sharing scores.

Also, ask Eli to hook you up with Hamish, I'll bet he has about a million drum scores he would be happy to share.

Sorry we didn't get a chance to talk in San Diego, Justin.

That sounds like a good idea. Maybe I will see you next year at San Diego.

Justin,

I will have to agree with Drew on this issue. Listen to Grade 2 and 3 bands or listen to solo competitions and find out what style(s) tickle your fancy. Key number one is you have to LIKE what your playing and key number 2, you have to be ABLE to play that style or have someone who can teach it to you!!

If you find a tune or tunes you like, I have an extensive library as well. Feel free to ask ... anything to help out a fellow player!!

Cheers
