    Nice job! We used to play this in orchestra - on clarinet. Although I won’t make to to your speed or beyond this looks like a great tune for practicing.

    Super cool! As you get more comfortable, my recommendation is to not hunch over.

    Thanks! It really is a good tune to work through. Its actually a lot of fun at lower tempos.
