N.I.# 351

By Thom Hasenpfug The Flamingo is a reference to the fun, neon-pink kind you might see at a hotel or restaurant in Palm Beach, Las Vegas, or Miami. The bass pans and bass guitar parts are similar, so the arrangement can be performed with either one omitted. Players may wish to use a bass guitar, along with the bass pan part, to help fill out the low-end frequencies and balance with the drumset. (00-39362) | Score & Parts NEW! | $17.99 UPC: 038081441214 | ISBN-13: 978-0-7390-9053-4

By Thom Hasenpfug Though the title sounds tropical, it is in fact the composer’s longtime house rabbit, Peaches, who loves papaya treats as a snack. The bass pans and bass guitar parts are similar, so the arrangement can be performed with either one omitted. Players may wish to use a bass guitar, along with the bass pan part, to help fill out the low-end frequencies and balance with the drumset.
