Snare Drum Solo #9 from "The Blue Book"

A “blue book” is a booklet used by college students to answer test questions or write essays. The Blue Book is designed to provide music suitable for contest, audition, technique development, and just plain drumming fun! In a sense, these solos may serve as a test of your rudimental drumming skills. The Blue Book includes music in a wide variety of rudimental styles in a range of difficulty from the developing student to the extremely advanced performer. This collection contains rudimental snare solos, tenor solos, and bass drum ensemble pieces that will provide musically enriching material while developing technical proficiency.

Creative in musical ideas as well as visual ideas. Achievable for a moderately experienced rudimental player.
