Solo / SB / Grade 6
This forthright march is written in F major, in ABA format. It starts with a four-bar introduction, which is followed by a 16-bar section that carries the main theme. The second section (also 16-bars) features short bass solos that interplay with dual notes on the treble, before returning to a repeat of the first section, although this is modified, and introduces thirds in the treble. It is written for Stradella bass instruments. Major chords can be played instead of 7th chords on the bass keyboard.
