by Jeff Queen
Instrumentation: Marching snare drum
No one likes tax time…until now! Snare drummer extraordinaire Jeff Queen pays his fair share with this meaty solo, Tax Time. Written for the advanced rudimental percussionist, the piece is designed to challenge the performer in the areas of two-height control, pulse control, flam rudiments, and low-end bounce. It is a straight-forward marching-style solo that incorporates visuals, playing zone manipulation, some odd meters, and fast playing.
It’s Tax Time…get a helmet!
